Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and a documentary from Ken Burns on PBS, this New York Times bestseller is an extraordinary achievement (The New Yorker)a magnificent, profoundly humane biography of cancerfrom its first documented appearances thousands of years ago through the epic battles in the twentieth century to cure, control, and conquer it to a radical new understanding of its essence.
Physician, researcher, and award-winning science writer, Siddhartha Mukherjee examines cancer with a cellular biologist’s precision, a historian’s perspective, and a biographer’s passion. The result is an astonishingly lucid and eloquent chronicle of a disease humans have lived withand perished fromfor more than five thousand years.
The story of cancer is a story of human ingenuity, resilience, and perseverance, but also of hubris, paternalism, and misperception. Mukherjee recounts centuries of discoveries, setbacks, victories, and deaths, told through the eyes of his predecessors and peers, training their wits against an infinitely resourceful adversary that, just three decades ago, was thought to be easily vanquished in an all-out war against cancer.

Amid the stress and despair of waiting for the treatment to work, Brad and Mia were met by an outpouring of kindness from friends, family and even complete strangers.

Author: by Elizabeth M. Adler
Published at: Johns Hopkins University Press; second edition (February 1, 2016)
The second edition of this award-winning guide reflects profound shifts in the lymphoma landscape, including new treatments that are extending survival. Winner, American Medical Writers Association Medical Book AwardWhen neurobiologist Elizabeth M. Adler was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma almost twenty years ago, she learned everything she could about the disease, both to cope with the emotional stress of her diagnosis and to make the best possible decisions for her treatment.
In Living with Lymphoma, she combines her scientific expertise and personal knowledge with a desire to help other people who have lymphoma manage this complex and often baffling disease. With the availability of more effective treatment regimens, many people with lymphoma are living longer; in fact, there are more than 700,000 lymphoma survivors in the United States alone.
Given this change in the lymphoma landscape, the second edition of this book places a greater emphasis on survivorship. The new edition includes the latest information on lymphoma diagnosis, treatment, and incidence and describes the most recent update to the WHO system of lymphoma classification and staging.
13. Uninformed Consent : The Hidden Dangers in Dental Care
Author: by Hal A. Huggins
Published at: Hampton Roads Publishing; 1st edition (January 1, 1999)
Dr. Huggins and Dr. Levy assert that a large number of disorders are, though often incurable, easily preventable. He proposes that multiple sclerosis, lupus, leukemia, chronic fatigue syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, many mental disorders including Alzheimer’s, and even major diseases like breast cancer are caused, in part, by the toxins we place in our bodies.
Where do these toxins come from and how do they get into our bodies? You my be surprised to find that you have actually paid to have them put there. These dangerous materials-mercury, cadmium, beryllium, nickel, and others-are used in everyday dentistry to make up the fillings, root canals, and bridgework in our mouths, and are supposed to be “safe.” But are they?
Uninformed Consent presents cases of toxic poisoning-of depressed immune systems and inexplicable illnesses-to toxins entering the bloodstream from the heavy metals in dental materials. The authors also discuss the hidden truths that the dental industry in America doesn’t want to talk about, and the real reasons the dangers of these materials have been suppressed and ignored.Drs.
14. Chemo to the Rescue: A Children's Book About Leukemia
Author: by Mary Brent
Published at: AuthorHouse (October 27, 2008)
When my daughter, Caitlin, was diagnosed with leukemia, she was five years old. Our life changed dramatically, and it was hard to answer the questions she had about her illness and explain why she must go through chemotherapy for such a long time.
At one point she began to rebel against the treatment, not understanding that the medicine that was making her feel bad was actually saving her life. Creating this book with Caitlin helped her to come to terms with her illness and accept the treatment.
It gave her the power she needed to fight and be strong during the difficult times. She is now eight years old and fully recovered. She looks back on this time as challenging, yet with pride. We hope that our book will encourage other children in the same way by providing a positive outlook to chemotherapy and hospital life.
