A Handbook for People with Cancer, Their Families, and Health Professionals

People List

Psychotherapist Lawrence LeShan has worked with cancer patients for more than forty years. His research has led people with cancer to find new, effective ways to fight for their lives. In this revised edition of his landmark book, he shows how psychological change, together with medical treatment, mobilizes a compromised immune system for healing. Cancer As a Turning Point also includes a life-transforming workbook of  hands-on exercises designed to help you evaluate your individuality and teach you how to get the most out of your immune system by leading a fuller, richer life.

With insight, wisdom, and compassion, Dr. LeShan draws on the experiences of those who have challenged cancer and triumphed. Blending uplifting and inspiring personal anecdotes with the latest professional advice, he encourages patients to harnass their inner selves to find a decisive turning point in cancer treatment.

"Inspiring... encouraging... tenderly and compassionately written, it acts almost like a loving companion."
~ Modern Maturity
