How to Cope Better When Someone You Love Has CancerBook - 2013
In 2005, Dr. William Penzer, a seasoned psychologist of more than four decades, found himself falling on his emotional face when his 31-year-old daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite having helped thousands of people navigate the choppy and challenging demands life often imposes, he was drowning in a sea of his own emotions. Like a traveler in a foreign land, which Dr. Penzer came to call Cancerville, he eventually discovered the pain-filled reality of supporting a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer. In this groundbreaking book, he shares all the secrets of surviving and staying the course in Cancerville, helping people take better care of themselves while being fully present for their loved ones. His advice will help readers quickly adapt to Cancerville: to feel more empowered and optimistic; to rise to the challenges; and to deal with emotional down times, strengthen their minds, and communicate more effectively.
