Davidson, NC-- To Be Released - November 15, 2012 - Savannah Heart Publishing is proud to support the release of Barbara Bragg’s new book, Destination Cancer Free. Destination Cancer Free is an easy to read, true life story and excellent resource.
Destination Cancer Free is an easy to read, excellent resource detailing one couple’s experience through head and neck cancer diagnosis, treatment and the year that followed.
This book reveals valuable information on beneficial products, challenging side effects, practical menus, patient specific needs and caregiver responsibilities.
The increase of head and neck cancer due to the HPV (human papilloma virus) is alarming. The same virus that is associated with cervical cancer in women is infecting an alarming number of people with head and neck cancer. According to statistics from the Oral Cancer Foundation, this year one person every hour will die from head and neck cancer and 640,000 new cases will be diagnosed worldwide this year alone.
Cancer is big business and if you aren’t diligent about your own care, you will get lost in the process. Nurses and doctors are people and they know what they know from education and experience, but they don’t know you. You must be your own advocate, ask questions and speak up for yourself. Read this journal and celebrate in the triumph of two people through an incredible journey reaching their destination cancer free.
Bragg says, “I am amazed at the rising statistics, but early detection, an experienced team of healthcare professionals and knowing your options if diagnosed may increase your chance of survival.”
Destination Cancer Free will be available November 15, 2012 on Amazon.com both in print and ebook as well as at the Barnes & Noble Nook store. For more information about author Barbara Bragg, please visit http://www.barbarabragg.com or her Facebook Page, Barbara L Bragg or on twitter @BL Bragg.
