Inspired by an award-winning series of Esquire articles on the author's own survival of colon cancer, The Colon Cancer Survivors' Guide shows how a person diagnosed with cancer stops becoming a patient and starts becoming a survivor. The book draws on medical research - Pesmen's and other survivors' personal experiences - plus insights from renown health care professionals on how to simplify and enrich life after cancer. Tips flow from the first CT follow-up scan to the targeted five-year-cure finish line. Above all, it offers advice on the healing of scars, both physical and emotional, how to leave cancer behind, and how to move confidently forward. It's a new type of cancer book focusing on the survivors, not the patient, as a target market. While it contains the grit, the personal, and the shock surrounding of the battling cancer, it also stresses the new (diet, treatment and other self-care) options of a modern colon cancer case. Written not only for survivors, but also for their family, friends, oncologists and other healthcare professionals.
