After Cancer Treatment: Heal Faster, Better, Stronger (Johns Hopkins Press)

Dr. Silver shares her own cancer journey and offers a step-by-step plan for physical healing, including exercise and diet recommendations and instructions for fighting fatigue, monitoring mood, and overcoming setbacks.

As you’ll read in After Cancer Treatment, at age 36, Julie Silver was enjoying an exciting career as a physician at Harvard Medical School and a rewarding personal life as a mother, wife, and award-winning writer. But she had the sense that something was wrong. Two years and multiple doctors later, she was diagnosed with the breast cancer she had suspected all along and was catapulted into the role of cancer patient.

Like many cancer patients who experience serious side-effects from treatment, Dr. Silver emerged from therapy feeling worse than when she started.  As she worked to heal herself, she wrote a book to help others recover after cancer treatment.  Dr. Silver’s advice comes from the heart — and from her experience as both a cancer survivor and a medical doctor who has spent her career helping people heal from serious illnesses and injuries. No matter where they are in their own journey with cancer, readers will find this book a personal, practical, and powerful guide to recovery.

  • Staying as strong as possible during cancer treatment
  • Healing optimally after cancer treatment
