Product description


Suzanne Chambers has written the game plan for coping with prostate cancer. She brings years of experience from observing how men and their mates cope. She also presents the how to" in terms that are understandable and acceptable. Football is a great metaphor for successful coping: working closely with the coach/oncologist; taking the offensive and charging forward; maintaining optimism and confidence; keeping an eye on the goal despite transient setbacks; being sure the whole team is working together. The stories in the book show how courage pays off, how engaging the spouse helps both in coping, and how humour and empathy ease the bruises of the game. It is a MUST for those coping with this type of cancer."--Professor Jimmie Holland, MD.

A must-read for all patients, and their families, who are faced with a diagnosis of prostate cancer and the life after it. The medical community is still in the infancy of incorporating issues of patient distress and the psycho-social elements of therapeutic care into clinical practice. This book helps medical consumers find their internal strength and empowers them to be advocates for their own best quality of life.--Virgil H. Simons, MPA, Prostate Net

Product Description

Prostate cancer is now the most common male cancer in the western world, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer. In the United States over 2.5 million men are living with a diagnosis of prostate cancer; in the UK over 250,000 men, and in Australia over 120,000 men. For each man who has had prostate cancer, there will be people close who care about them, and love them, who are also deeply affected. This book provides practical strategies to help cope with the emotional and psychological stress of living with prostate cancer and to regain a sense of ease about the situation in which you may find yourself. Written by one of the world’s leading researchers into the psychological effects of cancer and how best to provide support for individuals and couples, it is structured so that the reader can choose whatever chapter seems most relevant right now. Personal stories and insights from men and their partners offer emotional comfort and inspiration throughout. While everyone’s experience of prostate cancer is uniquely their own there is nothing quite like the wisdom that comes from others who have already walked the path.
