If you are concerned that the cancer in your family is hereditary, you face difficult choices.
Confronting hereditary cancer is a complex, confusing, and highly individual journey. With its unique combination of the latest research and expert advice about genetic counseling and testing, preventative surgery, fertility and family planning, and health insurance coverage information, as well as compelling personal stories, this book gives previvors, survivors, and their family members the guidance they need to face the unique challenges of hereditary cancer.
The tone of the book is an extraordinary combination of indisputably authoritative and insightful information, presented in a voice that is calm, clear, direct, balanced, realistic, and yet optimistic.
