The must-read summary of “Cancerland: A Medical Memoir,” by David Scadden, M.D.
Cancer presents a daunting challenge for patients, caregivers, and science. Most people encountering cancer feel like stepping into a foreign land called Cancerland.
The current state of science and medicine offer us many possibilities—radiation therapy, chemotherapy, stem cell therapy, precision surgery, and therapies relying on engineered viruses and immune cells.
The book leads you through the rapidly changing landscape of Cancerland, from the dawn of the biological age in the mid-1950s to the present. By exploring the science of cancer and stem cells, new therapies, and drugs, the author makes Cancerland more habitable and reveals that progress toward a cure is real.

This authoritative reference examines in depth the myriad challenges facing pediatric cancer survivors and proposes a robust framework for structured follow-up of these patients through adulthood. Approaches to long-term follow-up include both established models of care and targeted models of lifelong surveillance of late effects by bodily systems and neurological outcomes. Sections devoted to quality of life and re-entry after treatment focus on key concerns such as health risk behaviors, school and career issues, psychological challenges, and care disparities. And a robust resources section adds extra usefulness to the expert coverage.
Among the Handbook’s topics:
• Developmental considerations in the transition from child and adolescent to adult survivorship. • Long-term follow-up roadmaps by disease and treatment. • Neuropsychological effects of pediatric brain tumors and associated treatment. • Building resiliency in childhood cancer survivors: a clinician’s perspective. • School issues and educational strategies for survivors of childhood cancer. • Educating and preparing the childhood cancer survivor for long-term care: a curriculum model for cancer centers.
A work of rare scope, scholarship, and clinical acumen, the Handbook of Long-Term Care of the Childhood Cancer Survivor is a rewarding, practice-building resource essential to a wide range of healing professionals, including primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, nurses, psychologists, neuropsychologists, child psychologists, and licensed therapists.
An update of the previous Killing Cancer With Spices. The steps didn’t change. I have more resources and I needed to make changes to the grammar. I am more convinced that these two things: Anti-Inflammation and Cancer Stem Cells are the two ways that I beat cancer.
