by Mayer, Musa

Advanced Breast Cancer speaks of a different reality where women with metastic disease often live for many years and that time can be full and meaningful. Aspects covered include: coping with the shock of recurrence and making treatment decisions; communicating effectively with medical personnel; managing symptoms of disease progression and treatment side effects; emotional support and finding ways to keep hope alive and discover meaning in the midst of adversity.
