Breast Cancer

By Lesley Fallowfield; Andrew Clark | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

I owe an enormous debt to numerous people who have contributed in various ways to either the writing of this book or the research on which it is based. Worthy of special mention is the Cancer Research Campaign which has provided all the financial support for my work on the psychological aspects of breast cancer, for which I thank both the Campaign and all its fund raisers. I am especially indebted to Dr Peter Maguire and Professor Michael Baum who have been my primary research collaborators over the past seven years. Dr Maguire’s own research and writing has influenced me greatly. He has probably done more to further the cause of sensible research into the psychological aspects of breast cancer than any other person in this country. It was Dr Maguire who taught me most of what I now know about interviewing people who have cancer. Professor Baum has been a great champion of sound research through clinical trials. He has always been a firm advocate of finding more effective treatments for breast cancer which improve both the quality as well as the quantity of life. Consequently he has done much to promote our work on the psychosocial outcome of therapy amongst his fellow surgeons.

I am also deeply grateful to my indefatigable research assistant and friend, Angela Hall, who has worked so hard over the past four years conducting interviews with patients in our studies. Endless conversations with her about the interpretation of data collected have generated many of the ideas expressed in this book. I also appreciate many of the valuable comments that she made on early drafts.
