Cancer hits hard at any age, but it is especially challenging for teens who must battle their disease while negotiating the tricky terrain of adolescence.

This book explores the range of challenges cancer places on both teens who have cancer and teens who have friends or family members with cancer.

Denise Thornton follows cancer's devastating path through a teen's life from diagnosis to treatment and survivorship, with special attention to how cancer can affect relations with friends and family, and its impact on school life.

Living with Cancer explores the toll cancer can take on self image and looks at how teens facing cancer have found a sense of balance and control.

Each chapter takes advantage of expert knowledge and new information that is continually coming to light, but the bulk of the book is made up of narratives shared by teens whose lives have been changed by cancer.

This book will prove immensely useful for teens who are facing cancer, as well as friends and family members who want to understand and support them.
