Like many cancer patients, Beverly Battaglia was blindsided when told she had colon cancer. Beverly discusses how she dealt with the diagnosis, shares a few of the stumbling blocks encountered and explains how each small triumph on her cancer recovery journey was viewed as an achievement. Her oncologist and co-author, Dr. Amy Law, reviews colon cancer screening, symptoms, recommendations and treatment goals, and shares her views on providing the best care for each of her recovering patients.
