Does your book also cover the period after treatment and the magic five year period (breast cancer) is completed and you are told "OK, no further annual scans will be needed. You are cured." Cancer snuck up on me and I am left wondering how will I know if and when it does again before symptoms manifest themselves. Thank you. Karen, Brooklyn
