Once we are diagnosed with cancer, we realize how little we know about it.  We've read articles our whole lives about how 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away', but unless we're a scientist (or an avid reader of science journals), we don't fully understand how our body fights disease.

If you're like me, you now have a burning desire to learn more - as if your life depended on it.  This page contains the books, videos and other resources that I found most informative.  Most you will find at your local library, but I've included links to amazon for more detailed descriptions.
