here are over 10 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 15 years of research and interviews with hundreds of survivors. Magee and Scalzo guide survivors through a unique process with daily practices that build a bridge from hospital to home, and beyond.
