We've all heard the statistic: 1 in 8 women will get a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in her lifetime. But there's another just-as-relevant number that isn't as widely broadcast: 76 percent of those women will be alive 10 years later. This guide from America's most trusted health magazine helps women navigate treatment, medical costs, and lifestyle changes and emerge with their physical and mental health intact. Organized to take readers from diagnosis to survival and all the steps in between, Prevention The Ultimate Guide to Breast Cancer offers relevant information in technical yet accessible language, including: supplements and recipes that stimulate appetite, ease treatment side effects, promote recovery, and help prevent a recurrence; complementary and alternative treatments and medicine that can be beneficial; real-life advice from women with breast cancer on issues such as processing the emotions that accompany a diagnosis; and what to expect as a cancer survivor. This guide will help any woman who has been diagnosed feel organized, informed, hopeful, reassured, and focused on becoming well, increasing her chances of landing in that healthy 76 percent.
