The field of psychosocial oncology is a rapidly expanding area, and much has been written about how the cancer patient deals with the disease. However, there is little or no literature about the impact of cancer on the family system. This book examines the multi-faceted effects a cancer diagnosis has on family life, including its structure, interpersonal relationships, and dynamics. It further considers family's various roles within the process of short-or long-term illness, remission, separation, and death.
