Chapter 29 presents a patient's perspective, and describes Manuchehr Shirmohamadi's experience when diagnosed with cancer and his reactions to it, gathering information and screening about cancer and its treatments, and when he was fighting the disease. It also contains some advice for better living that he learned from his experience. Most importantly, this chapter presents how cancer changed him, and offers a summary and some further thoughts now that he has been cancer free for a number of years.
