This moving and inspirational collection of personal essays and poems explores what life is like after the diagnosis of cancer. The anthology is written by those who have been affected by cancer firsthand, whether directly or through someone they love.
Crafted by those who participated in the Write Treatment Workshops at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospitals in New York City, the anthology not only shows the diversity of the city but also the diversity of experiences of those touched by a life-threatening diagnosis.
In addition to illuminating what life is like for those living with cancer and for their loved ones, The Write Treatment Anthology is also a beautiful compilation of writing all on its own. It stands not only as a testament to the writers’ experiences but also as a demonstration of the enduring and healing power of writing.
In the nonfiction story My Journey with Infiltrating Ductile Carcinoma (Breast Cancer), author W. Andranette Anderson uses passion and emotions in order to let her audience know how the challenges of breast cancer affect her and her family. Her challenges are compounded when her mother and stepdad are also diagnosed with serious illnesses. She is now the primary caregiver not only for her parents but also for herself. The story takes place over a period of two and a half years. During this time, Andranette does her best to live her life as normally as possible, do whatever is needed for her parents, and use her daily activities as a much needed respite in order to ensure her own self preservation. Though she had to stop working as an educator to take care of her parents and herself, she would not trade anything for the lessons that she learned from this awe-inspiring experience.
Dr. Maker's book is designed to empower breast cancer patients to go beyond the current one-size-fits-all "standard of care" and make the decisions that are best suited for themselves and their loved ones. Because of her research background, Dr. Maker was able to uncover a great deal of information that is not commonly known to patients. This information helped her tremendously through her bout with breast cancer and remission, and it can help you. This is the story of Dr. Maker's journey and the book she wished she had when she needed it.
Current treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and hormone therapy are not always successful: 40,000 women die every year in the United States after undergoing treatment, and many more are harmed by serious side effects. In order to make informed decisions, patients need to understand all the treatment options and survival rates, and all the side effects. Readers may not make the same choices as Dr. Maker did, but the information she lays out will enable them to make choices that are best for themselves and their loved ones.“
This highly recommended pick should be in every general lending library and in every health or women’s issues collection. Readers should anticipate not a ‘how to’ title, but a blend of autobiography and investigation as Janet Maker, Ph.D. discusses her journey through the world of medical diagnostic procedures and cancer treatments…The result is far beyond an autobiography of experience and delves into the worlds of latest research applications, best practices, and treatments every breast cancer patient should know about before they make decisions.” ~Diane Donovan, Editor, Midwest Book Review
This cancer case report series documents the effectiveness of the nutritional/enzyme cancer treatment designed by Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD. The book provides an in-depth analysis of the Gonzalez Protocol in both theory and practice, with fifty representative patients with biopsy-proven pancreatic or breast cancer. This pioneering book includes patients diagnosed with a poor prognosis or terminal malignancies who did well under Dr. Gonzalez's care. Conquering Cancer: Volume Two will be available in summer 2017 and will cover additional types of cancer and other degenerative diseases. These two volumes of Conquering Cancer are the culmination of Dr. Gonzalez's twenty-eight-year medical career, as he died suddenly and unexpectedly in July 2015. This book is now available to all those with an interest in cancer in general, the enzyme treatment of cancer in particular, alternative medicine, and the Gonzalez Protocol. Note: this is not a "how-to" book for self-treatment. He does not detail the specific treatments for these patients because each patient requires a medical protocol based on his or her medical profile and type of cancer. All medical treatment for serious illnesses should be supervised by trained professionals and not dictated by another persons' history found in a book. These cases illustrate that there are other proven ways of treating cancer than those dictated by allopathic medicine and specifically, that long-term remission is possible through holistic care.
This second volume of Dr. Gonzalez's Conquering Cancer best case report series documents 62 patients on his nutritional enzyme therapy. The book details patients with 17 different types of cancer including: Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma, Bladder, Colon, Kidney, Liver, Leukemia, Lung, Lymphoma, Melanoma, Mesothelioma, Ovarian, Prostate, Salivary Gland, Sarcoma, Thyroid, Uterine, Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia plus a diabetes case report. This is a companion book to Conquering Cancer: Volume One - 50 Pancreatic and Breast Cancer Best Case Reports from Nicholas J. Gonzalez, MD. All of these patients have documented diagnoses of cancer. Since The Gonzalez Protocol has also proven to be effective for treating many other degenerative diseases, this book also includes a reprinted peer-reviewed case study of a Dr. Gonzalez patient with insulin-dependent diabetes. Types of Cancer Cases Included in Conquering Cancer: Volume Two: • Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma • Bladder • Colon • Kidney • Liver • Leukemia • Lung • Lymphoma • Melanoma • Mesothelioma • Ovarian • Prostate • Salivary Gland • Sarcoma • Thyroid • Uterine • Waldenstrom's Macroglobulinemia PLEASE NOTE THAT CONQUERING CANCER IS NOT A "HOW-TO" BOOK. It documents the case histories of these miraculous patients under The Gonzalez Protocol. It does not detail the specific individual treatments designed for these patients because medical treatment should be supervised by trained professionals.
