Praise for You Finished Treatment, Now What?
“There is an enormous unmet need for relatable, valid, clear and helpful advice for people after cancer treatment is complete and patients are all too often abandoned to the rocky road of survivorship. Drawing on her own experience as both a practitioner and a patient, Dr. Rothenberg ably navigates the world of care and cure with the effortless encouragement of a real pro who really knows and can help you understand what’s needed to step into a brighter and better future.”—Richard Penson, MD, MRCP, Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School & Clinical Director of Medical Gynecologic Oncology, Massachusetts General Hospital
“This book and all of Dr. Rothenberg’s approaches create a treatment plan that dovetails and compliments conventional cancer care, and most importantly encourages physical vitality, mental clarity and emotional balance.”—Nancy H. O’Hara, MD, MPH, FAAP
