Climbing the Mountain recounts the cancer journey of one man, demonstrates how even in the most trying of circumstances, an active life can bring measures of well-being. The book is packed with information that readers can use to lift some of the physical and psychological burdens that cancer diagnosis and treatment can bring.The authors consider how the scope and texture of preparation, practice, and social support changes along cancer's trail. Accordingly, they consider how to cope with the stresses and strains of diagnosis, first treatment, short-term remission, second treatment, long-term remission, and palliative care. In all the chapters, the authors highlight the important relationship among exercise, activity, and well-being.
