Most women diagnosed with breast cancer experience emotions such as shock, anger and distress. For Dr Christine Baker, former Director of the Brisbane Royal Women's Hospital Breast Screening Service with more than 40 years' experience working in the field, it was no different. Despite her extensive knowledge about breast cancer causes and treatments, she asked, 'Why has my body let me down?'

Beyond Breast Cancer is the result of Christine's comprehensive research into ways in which breast-cancer survivors can help themselves post treatment. She stresses that, along with regular breast checks, survivors should take charge of their health to limit any recurrence. Divided into three parts, this book discusses the relationship between cancer and the body, the consequences of treatment, and how to devise a survivorship care plan. A 'Helpful Advice' section in each chapter identifies what actions you can take to ensure a healthier future.

Beyond Breast Cancer arms you with the knowledge to become more proactive and empowered in planning how to recover, restore and rebuild your health.
