'Once treatment stops, and people leave strictly managed clinical environments, survivors feel as though they had "fallen off a cliff edge"... feeling isolated and abandoned at a time when support is needed the most'. - Mental Health Foundation
From the final infusion to the five-year check, After Breast Cancer gives a step-by-step support package to coping post-treatment. It follows on from Sara Liyanage's successful coverage of diagnosis and treatment in Ticking Off Breast Cancer, and is driven not only by her experience of illness, but underpinned by contributions from leading oncologists, heads of cancer services, and clinical consultant psychologists.
With a readable blend of informality and medically endorsed insight, After Breast Cancer has an optimistic outlook and a reassuring tone, but doesn't flinch from discussing the possibility of secondary cancer, or the full impact of treatment and surgery on you or your loved one. It features a huge amount of practical information, including a full toolkit for navigating the days post-treatment - including breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation, journaling, affirmations and a healthy bedtime routine.
Designed for women of all backgrounds, whatever the nature of their diagnosis, this blend of approachability, lived experience and medical insight puts the power firmly back in your hands, as a breast cancer survivor.
