    Page Tolbert and Penny Damaskos have devoted their careers to working with cancer survivors . . . Time and time again, they have provided immeasurable help to our cancer survivors, hearing their fears and concerns, counseling with them, and helping to smooth out the bumps and potholes in the survivor experience. And now they share from their rich and meaningful experiences in crafting this wonderful book.   I hope that this book becomes a starting point for all cancer survivors.

    I can think of no two people better equipped to write a book for survivors than these two authors who have been on the "front line" of survivorship in the Post-Treatment Resource Program at Memorial . . . The format of questions is excellent and the reader who is interested in the range of issues for survivors of cancer will find this very much to their liking--and their needs.
