If you or someone close to you has received a cancer diagnosis, your first instinct may be to destroy the disease as quickly as possible, by any means possible. But this can lead to a barrage of questions: "What are my treatment options?" "Where can I get the best care?" "What will my insurance cover?" "How can I cope?"

Dr. Saar Porrath and his wife, Dr. Toni Bernay, found themselves facing these questions when Saar developed a rare form of cancer. Even with their collective medical expertise, they struggled to chart a course against the disease. Their experience helped shape the Personal Cancer Management System (PCMS), a 10-step program that's the centerpiece of When It's Cancer.

The PCMS guides patients and their loved ones through the maze of physical, psychological, social, logistical, financial, and legal issues that so often accompany a cancer diagnosis. Using worksheets, checklists, and self-assessments, patients gather critical information and resources to effectively manage the disease and make informed decisions about their care.

When It's Cancer is not about finding a cure but rather about gaining a sense of control. Even small victories can fortify the immune system, fend off depression, and sustain quality of life. These can have a dramatic impact on the outcome of any cancer battle.
