Details
Aimed at the specific needs of African Americans, this book is both a complete medical guide and a human exploration of the emotional aspects of cancer. Recognizing that African Americans develop different types of cancers in greater proportion to other cultural groups and often face diminished access to health care and treatment, this guide includes information on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of more than 20 types of cancer, navigating the health care system, and the influence of diet and faith on one's treatment and recovery. Personal stories illustrate the human sides of the disease--the joy of successful treatment, the distress accompanying death.
