A Book Based on Extensive Research

Cancer—Now What? is based on much more than just Dr. Kenneth Haugk’s personal experience; it also draws on extensive research. He led a 16-person research team that dedicated more than 35,000 person-hours to the project over the course of five years.

In developing the book, this research team worked with 2,741 cancer survivors and loved ones of those diagnosed with cancer, as well as 820 medical professionals in oncology and other fields. The words, experiences, and expertise of these research participants contributed greatly to the depth and authenticity of the book.

What the Research Included

The result of all this research is a book that’s true to people’s actual experiences with cancer—providing timeless information, practical ideas, and genuine hope.
