A five-time survivor’s guide to navigating your cancer journey
If you or your loved one are one of the 18 million people worldwide diagnosed with cancer each year, you know exactly how overwhelming and scary the journey is.
In this valuable patient and caregiver guide, Bill Potts—entrepreneur, business leader, IRONMAN triathlete, and five-time cancer survivor—tells you everything you need to know to take on this fight. With empathy and honesty, he explains exactly what to expect, and shares lessons and important tips you can put into action all the way: from diagnosis, to treatment, to remission, to cure—and how to face setbacks on your road to recovery.
You’ll learn how to advocate for yourself, how to pick and manage your care team, and how to care for yourself emotionally and mentally.
