Navigating Life with a Brain Tumor

Picked up Neurology Now magazine this week at NO office. An article showcased a new book titled above written by two medical professionals. We ordered it online delivered for under $20. It's a wonderful resource for newly diagnosed BT patients and caregivers. Would have helped us early on when we were trying to assimilate GBM information. Two years post diagnosis it has confirmed as we stumbled down the road we landed pretty much ok.

Thanks for this. I just looked on amazon and you can read the index and first few pages.  Wish we had it at diagnosis 5 mos ago! But with so few resources, this is a really welcome discovery.

That does look good, and I see it's Oxford University Press. When we got the GBM diagnosis two years ago, all that was "out there" was self-published books, or books that were out of date, so I'm glad to see this.

after reading this post I mentioned it to my parents who went and ordered it for us.  I say us because this isn't just my battle.  

I have almost finished it and I think that this should be handed out to patients who are newly diagnosed with a brain tumor!  I would have loved to have had this book 3 months ago when I was diagnosed, would have saved me a lot of time trying to search the internet for information when it is all in that book!!

i highly recommend it!!
