This book is written for and dedicated to the people with cancer who want to do everything in their power to help themselves and their doctor so they will have the best chance of beating their disease. Five days after I was told I had “terminal” lung cancer, another doctor told me he would cure me so I could work for cancer. I promised that if he did, I would. CANCER…there’s hope, Fighting Cancer and Guide For Cancer Supporters are three of the many projects we are working on to fulfill that promise. We trust this book will provide you with the knowledge, hope, inspiration and desire to successfully fight your disease.
One woman wrote to us saying, “Last August 24, I had surgery for ovarian cancer. The doctor said the cancer had spread throughout the abdominal cavity and he saw no point in putting me through chemotherapy or radiation. He felt I should live whatever time I had left in peace and dignity. I refused to accept that and decided to read everything I could on my enemy. One of the first books I read was Richard Bloch’s "CANCER…there’s hope." After reading this, I started practicing “imaging” and continued to read and practice attitudinal healing. When the doctor next saw me, he was so surprised at my appearance and progress, he decided to go ahead with chemotherapy. The cancer now seems to be localized in one mass that should be removable by surgery... I feel I owe a great deal to Mr. Bloch’s books...”
"We know everyone cannot beat cancer. If this book helps just one person overcome their problem, all our efforts will be worthwhile. Maybe that one person can be you." - Richard Bloch, Co-founder H&R Block, Inc.
This book is a product of Dick and Annette Bloch’s own experience with cancer. The overriding message that cancer patients must utilize all available information to seek out the best possible care and do everything they can to maximize their chances for therapeutic success is a vital one. This is a strong personal statement about striving for life. It should motivate many cancer patients to obtain state-of-the-art treatment and to play an active part in increasing their own chances of being among the growing number of survivors. Vincent T.
