A diagnosis of cancer brings with it a million questions, and the
first and most important source of information is your treatment team.
Whatever your questions or concerns, you should never hesitate to share
them with your physical treatment team much more productive, and the
information you gain will help you make informed decisions about your
treatment plan. Call the YWCA at (714)-871-4485 to receive your free
copy of the Cancer and Careers Living and Works with Cancer Workbook.
