    “Lung Cancer & Mesothelioma”

    A Book Review By Lorraine Kember

    The very mention of the word Cancer, strikes fear into all of us. It seems that every day we learn of someone close to us being diagnosed and all too often their cancer is terminal. There is nothing that can prepare us for a terminal diagnosis and the grief we experience at these times is intensified by our fear of the unknown, and our lack of knowledge regarding the disease and the pain and symptoms associated with it.

    From personal experience I know that knowledge is the key to providing a better “quality of life” for the cancer patient. Better understanding of the stages of the disease and of methods and medications available to treat the pain and symptoms caused by it, allow for the patient and those who care for them, to make informed decisions regarding their care. In this way, they are able to regain some control over their lives.

    Rarely does one find all the information they need in one book, however I believe Howard’s well researched and comprehensive book “Lung Cancer & Mesothelioma”, is quite unique. It provides a wealth of relevant and useful information including; how various types of cancer are formed, medical trials, available treatments and medications, insight and discussion regarding the emotional burden of cancer upon the patient and their families and ways by which to manage grief.

    I believe this book will provide an invaluable resource for anyone who has or who is caring for someone with cancer.
