The Cancer Companion is a comforting, constructive, and jargon-free guide which will have a lasting and meaningful impact on the mental wellbeing of anyone whose life has been affected by cancer.
This simple structure, combined with the book's comprehensive approach, aims to help people find a companionate commentary on their situation, and to engage with the outlined strategies.
The book is written in short, concise chapters, organised in four sections: diagnosis and treatment ending treatment managing advanced disease strategies to manage the specific psychological components which may occur (including anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and management of relationships).
The Cancer Companion is a compassionate, down-to-earth guide for those navigating these difficult and complex emotions.
With over a decade of experience working with cancer patients and their families, author Dr Toni Lindsay understands that accessible, constructive emotional guidance is vital.
Personal note from Siobhan: I have read this book and I think this is a really helpful book especially for those who are newly diagnosed. It's not too overwhelming and takes into account all aspects of what a patient may be facing, the physical and psychological sides. I think it is a very helpful resource.
