I'm Not Lance! A Cancer Experience and Survival Guide for Mere Mortals
The Armstrong Lie. The definitive account of Lance Armstrong's spectacular rise and fall. In June , when Lance Armstrong fled his palatial home in Texas, downsizing in the face of multimillion-dollar lawsuits, Juliet Macur was there - talking to his girlfriend and children and listening to Armstrong's version of the truth. She was one of the few media members aside from Oprah Winfrey to be granted extended one-on-one At the center of Cycle of Lies is Armstrong himself, revealed through face-to-face interviews. But this unfolding narrative is given depth and breadth by the firsthand accounts of more than witnesses, including family members whom Armstrong had long since turned his back on - the adoptive father who gave him the Armstrong name, a grandmother, an aunt.
Perhaps most damning of all is the taped testimony of the late J. Neal, the most influential of Armstrong's many father figures, recorded in the final years of Neal's life as he lost his battle with cancer just as Armstrong gained fame for surviving the disease.
In the end, it was Armstrong's former friends, those who had once occupied the precious space of his inner circle, who betrayed him. They were the ones who dealt Armstrong his fatal blow by breaking the code of silence that shielded the public from the grim truth about the sport of cycling - and the grim truth about its golden boy, Armstrong. Threading together the vivid and disparate voices of those with intimate knowledge of the private and public Armstrong, Macur weaves a comprehensive and unforgettably rich tapestry of one man's astonishing rise to global fame and fortune and his devastating fall from grace.
The World According to Lance.

As Walsh delved ever deeper into the shadow world of performance-enhancing drugs in professional athletics, he accumulated a mounting pile of evidence that led a furious Armstrong to take legal action against him. But he could not make Walsh—or the story—go away, and in the autumn of , Walsh was vindicated when the cyclist was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. With this remarkable book, Walsh has produced both the definitive account of the Armstrong scandal, and a testament to the importance of journalists who are willing to report a difficult truth over a popular fantasy.
All For One. Slaying the Badger. Featuring over 75 sources of archive material, Stop at Nothing: The Lance Armstrong Story tells the intimate but explosive story of the man behind the greatest fraud in recent sporting history, a portrait of a man who stopped at nothing in pursuit of money, fame and success. It reveals how Armstrong duped the world with his story of a miraculous recovery from cancer to become a sporting icon and The film maps how Armstrong's cheating and bullying became more extreme and how a few brave souls fought back, until eventually their voices were heard.
Director Alex Holmes tracks down some of his former friends and team members who reveal how his cheating was the centre of a grand conspiracy in which Armstrong and his backers sought to steal the Tour de France.
Understanding how cancer affects the survivor's family is important in efforts to develop a more comprehensive approach to cancer, both in terms of guiding psychosocial oncology research as well as improving clinical practice. In the next set of four articles, the authors explore the efficacy of interventions delivered at different points in the cancer trajectory to improve survivors' coping and health.
A provocative study by Spiegel et al. Goodwin provides a review of the randomized trials of group therapy interventions, including her own replication study of the intervention established by Spiegel et al. However, she goes on to state that such interventions, in part related to the unique source and type of social support they offer, provide important psychological benefits, in particular for patients who are more distressed. This article reminds us that improving the quality of life of cancer survivors is still an important goal of interventions.
Goodwin's work also highlights the need—and presaged the current call for—more rigorous design, analysis, and reporting of future efforts in this area. Given that some people may be naturally more resilient than others in dealing with life's stressors, the question arises whether there are ways to foster resilience and help people deal more effectively with adversity.
His work acknowledges that individuals differ in how they attempt to cope with cancer and deal with its attendant emotional burden. They find that individual differences in personality play a significant role in affecting people's reactions to adversity and also are important in determining who benefits from such interventions. Most clinicians are aware that it is important for survivors to continue to be monitored for disease recurrence across their lifetime.
However, data are beginning to demonstrate that it may be equally important for survivors to alter behaviors that have the potential to increase their risk of further cancer and diverse comorbid conditions.
Pinto and Trunzo review the literature regarding four key health behaviors of cancer survivors that pose an additional risk to wellness outcomes: smoking, the use of alcohol, reduced physical activity, and poor diet. Given the relatively slower pace of advances in oncology treatment innovation, developing and disseminating effective strategies to support survivors' adoption of healthy behaviors may result in more rapid improvements in survivors' quality of life than waiting for less toxic therapies.
They also may play a role in prolonging survival. The research presented in this supplement makes it clear that not all cancer survivors need psychosocial interventions. Research validating the reliability of the new NCCN screening tool in identifying those patients at risk for problems in adapting is already underway. Measuring the impact on survivors' ultimate health and functional outcomes as well as the cost of their care as a function of the use of this tool to triage patients to supportive services care represents a critical next step in evaluating the impact of these guidelines.
Although not included in this supplement, the research by Kazak et al. In the final two articles in this supplement, the authors describe what it will take for us to translate the current survivorship science into practice and policy. One of the primary reasons for studying survivorship issues—the complex physical, functional, social, emotional, and economic impact of the many diseases we call cancer—is to use the results of this research to evaluate current and inform future efforts to improve the effectiveness of cancer treatments in curing or controlling cancer, while minimizing its human and social costs.
In her article, Hudson notes the growing concern that the physical and personal price of cure in childhood cancer may be higher than expected. Hudson observes that as children and adolescents age and transition away from care delivered by pediatric oncology specialists to that provided by community medical care providers, problems can arise. She urged us to be cognizant that we cannot solve the problems we do not understand, and therefore must continue to pursue and support research concerning survivorship issues.
The third biennial conference will be held again in Washington, DC in the fall of In the past 3 years, cancer survivorship has matured rapidly both as a field of research and as a focus of national attention. Volume , Issue S The full text of this article hosted at iucr. Think normal and neutral.

Take a few deep breaths and stay calm. Free natural therapy help, no thanks, I have been doing natural therapy stuff since I was 17 You could know that about me already…. Wow so nice to finally share these feelings and know that I am not alone. I mean really? I wish people would have told me that it was natural to be scared and angry. Is there anything I can do?

I started to have a panic attack as she kept rambling on with other similar crazy statements all the while with her arms around in a vise grip. I finally broke free thanks to my mother noticing what was happening and intervening. I sobbed the whole drive home. Not long after that awful moment, as word got out about W.

That book quickly found its way into the circular file. I wish people would think before they speak and not make such assumptions especially when talking with people who are grappling with grave illnesses. Some of the examples you share of what people have said to others just floor me. When I had an uncle diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer, I stayed away, too afraid that I would say something ridiculous. I know that i would trip over my own insecurity and fear around the whole thing.
