When you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, life becomes a roller coaster of overwhelming questions and emotions.

Deborah Gomer knows the feeling. She is a cancer survivor and an oncology nurse. Having been the patient and caregiver, she understands the need to take control of that roller coaster. In THE BY-YOUR-SIDE CANCER GUIDE, Deborah walks you through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond with honesty and understanding. As a certified health coach, she provides the tools you need to find your inner strength and navigate your journey.

Deborah addresses the role of nutrition, spirituality, and mindfulness as she digs deep into the tender topics that aren’t often discussed. She provides a catalog of resources, as well as:

  • Information on sexuality and intimacy issues
  • Tips for addressing advanced directives and cancer recurrence
  • Strategies for managing depression

THE BY-YOUR-SIDE CANCER GUIDE will empower you to take control of your cancer and prepare you to be proactive. It will become the resource you keep by your side.
