You have come through cancer with flying colors. From diagnosis to surgery, chemo to radiation, you have reached the finish line! Your friends and family are jubilant. You are a survivor! So why are you plagued with vague anxieties, or specific fears about cancer recurrence? Why does every cough or headache cast a shadow? Why does every ache or pain make you think that this may be a metastasis? Why can’t life return to being what it was before the big “C”? No one shares this big secret. Most people who have gone through cancer live with an underlying sense of anxiety about cancer returning.
This small handbook will help you overcome the worries, fears and anxieties that are a part of every cancer survivor’s life. In clear and simple language accompanied by helpful exercises, Dr. Naomi Baum, a trauma psychologist and cancer survivor herself, details a plan that brings hope to those who suffer from fear of cancer recurrence, or fear of cancer itself.
Her seven day plan, which can be followed or modified to individual preference will bring relief to cancer survivors and other individuals who spent far too much time worrying about cancer.
