About the Author

Professor Suzanne Chambers is a Griffith University, Australia, health psychologist. She has worked as a practitioner and researcher in psychological support for people with cancer for over 20 years focusing most recently on trials of interventions that address couple support and psychological distress in men with prostate cancer. She is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow and the 2013 William Rudder Fellow. Her scientific publication record is extensive and she is highly regarded internationally within both the psychological and medical fields for the quality, innovation, and breadth of her work.


Suzanne Chambers has written the game plan for coping with prostate cancer. She brings years of experience from observing how men and their mates cope. She also presents the how to" in terms that are understandable and acceptable. Football is a great metaphor for successful coping: working closely with the coach/oncologist; taking the offensive and charging forward; maintaining optimism and confidence; keeping an eye on the goal despite transient setbacks; being sure the whole team is working together. The stories in the book show how courage pays off, how engaging the spouse helps both in coping, and how humour and empathy ease the bruises of the game. It is a MUST for those coping with this type of cancer."--Professor Jimmie Holland, MD.
A must-read for all patients, and their families, who are faced with a diagnosis of prostate cancer and the life after it. The medical community is still in the infancy of incorporating issues of patient distress and the psycho-social elements of therapeutic care into clinical practice. This book helps medical consumers find their internal strength and empowers them to be advocates for their own best quality of life.--Virgil H. Simons, MPA, Prostate Net
