Back of the Book

It was ironical that in the face of death, I began, for the first time, to really live. When Anup Kumar discovered he had cancer it had already advanced to the last stages. He was told he had only four months to live. This book is the outcome of theemothinal and physical anguish that followed, as much more, it is about the power of the human mind and body to turn a death sentence around.

It is said that the only real experts on cancer are cancer patients themselves. They’ll tell you things the doctors won’t. For instance, how do you accept the presence of cancer in your life? How do you conquer fear? What exactly are the side effects of chemotherapy? What precautions should you take? The joy of Cancer answers there question and more.

Written in the form of a guide, it enumerates a seven-point battle plan against cancer. The basic premise of this plan is that survival is as much in the hands of the cancer patient as the doctors.
