I believe that this is a "must read" for anyone facing cancer; whether it is yourself, a family member or a dear, dear friend - or even a suffering stranger. Especially if they are interested to REALLY looking "outside the box" for help and not for quackery! The methods of these authors has been tested and used, first hand, by someone I care about. A little over two years ago she had been diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer that had spread to the ENTIRE inner lining of her pelvic area. Today, more than two years after drastic, radical surgery when over 100 tumors were removed from the wall of her pelvic area and after having been told by multiple main-stream doctors that she should "put her affairs in order" she is now being declared cancer-free! It has been a long, arduous 2-year-plus battle. To me this wonderful person visually personifies what Dr. Maya Angelou (sp?) meant in her poem when she wrote: "And still I rise!" And she shows all the reasons about WHY involved people should read this. Do your own life a favor - read this book!
