Summary: www.raincoast.com Picking up the Pieces; Moving Forward after Surviving Cancer  , by Sherri Magee, PhD, and Kathy Scalzo, MSOD. There are over 11 million cancer survivors in North America, and every year doctors diagnose one million new cases.  Most survivors emerge disoriented and scarred.  The side effects are not only physical: emotional and financial instability, changed relationships and spiritual questions leave many feeling overwhelmed.  Survivors speak of feeling fragmented, of needing to 'pick up the pieces' of their lives once the struggle with cancer is over. Practical, reassuring and informative, Picking Up the Pieces is based on years of research and interviews with hundreds of survivors.  The authors guide survivors through a unique process with daily practices that build a bridge from hospital to home and beyond.

You’re back to normal.’ My patients oriented me to the understanding that you never return to the ‘old normal’ after cancer, and that healing is about creating the 'new normal.' Magee and Scalzo provide essential directions for navigating the course between the old and the new normal, and for living well after cancer.” —Simon Sutcliffe, clinical oncologist and President, BC Cancer Agency --Picking Up the Pieces: Moving Forward after Surviving Cancer, Raincoast Books ISBN 1-55192-901-5For more on the book,  please visit raincoast.com/pickingupthepieces .-- This podcast is for personal use only.
