A guide to cancer has been produced by Wymondham-based charity Star Throwers.

The Star Throwers Guide To Cancer, by Pan Pantziarka, brings together advice and scientifically-grounded information to help patients and their carers navigate their own cancer journey.

It covers everything from the patient-doctor relationship, to diet, stress reduction, clinical trials, scientific papers, treatments abroad, ablative therapies and more.

It is a handbook for the proactive patient, providing scientific information and the tools to make complex decisions at all stages of treatment.

Mr Pantziarka is a scientist actively working in drug repurposing research, looking at non-cancer drugs which may be effective against cancer.

The book can be bought direct from Star Throwers, visit www.starthrowers.org.uk for more information.
