After Cancer: A Guide to your New LifeBy Wendy Schlessel Harpham, M.D., and Robert Jones, Editor
HarperCollins Publishers, 1995, 299 pages
ISBN: 0060976780

The author, a cancer survivor herself, understands that surviving cancer is more than just killing cancer cells and getting through treatment. She explores the practical issues and the psychosocial elements of recovery after cancer treatment that includes the emotional, social, spiritual and financial fallout of a cancer diagnosis. By helping survivors understand that they can't go back to where they were before cancer, Dr. Harpham encourages people to move forward to a different, "new normal."
