Format: Paperback
I was diagnosed with medium grade, T-cell, lymphoma(NHL) in October of 1995. I had horrible responses to standard chemotherapy and was ultimately transplanted (autologous BMT) in April of 1996. Everything failed. I finally gave up chemotherapy in November of 1996 after being told by doctors I was incurable. The cancer had spread from my lungs to my peripheral nervous system and skin (CTCL). I started researching ways to help myself. Read many books, one of which was "The Cancer Battle Plan". Yes, the plan does seem a little extreme, but let me tell you, it did get me back on my feet... I followed everything the book outlined regarding the two week detox program (except I couldn't stomach the Tea tree oil). I'm still alive today and actually still have cancer (8 years without remission, and 6 years since giving up converntional therapy)... it is not detectable by any medical test, but I still feel it via neuropathy in my nerves in the lower legs. Since the day I started the "Battle Plans" two week detox my symptoms have slowly and gradually (yet sweetly) receeded. My Oncologists are stumped. I've read some opionions criticising non-conventional therapies for giving patients "false hope" and I just have to say hope may have been and what STILL keeps me alive. Conventional therapy only keeps 50% of all patients alive for 5 years. If you ask me, there isn't "true hope" for any cancer patient. What you do have AND control is the ability to help yourself beyond what your oncologist will subscribe. Nutritional methods of supplementing your battle are NOTHING BUT logical. Conventional methods of cancer treatments are designed to reduce tumor bulk, but they do not remove all the cancer.Read more ›

Since there are all kinds of postings on this site about this book and their authors, etc. I would like to mention I have called about going to the HealthQuarters retreat and it costs $3,200 for one person(not including transportation to and from Colorado Springs) for an 11 day program, plus they are booked for several months in advance. They can only host 9 or 10 people at a time, and they are not a hospital, only an "educational center". Though this is somewhat cheap when compared to, say, going to other alternative hospitals or going out of the country, for a person like me, home on State Disability, this is more money than I have to spend on a program that my insurance company won't cover, not to mention the daily costs of my supplements and alternative medical care, also not fully covered by insurance, if at all. Dave and Anne's book, though certainly well intentioned and with a great spirit behind it, isn't much more than just a collection of the latest and most popular alternative treatments for cancer, all rolled up in a book like they are something new, when many have been around for years and years. If that, along with Ann's death, doesn't bother you and you still want to invest in tnis book, feel free. It is certainly inspirational and well intentioned reading. And who knows, it might help you, but go into it with your eyes open.

I was looking for a book that would enlighten me on the subject of chemotherapy and what one goes through when they find out they have cancer. Is it ok not to have all the answers? What does the relationship with the oncologist need to be? How do you achieve that confidence in him or her to entrust them with your life? What if I chose another venue? What would it look like?

The book is definitely an easy read. It is well written. The author shares her story, her battle with cancer, with openness and humour that's enlightening. I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to you, if you've just found out you have cancer or even to your spouse as it does help the spouse understand how they can help. Thank you Anne and David for sharing your experience with cancer.

Format: Paperback
I am 44. I had an emergency colectomy, to remove tumor, and have grade-c colon cancer. THis means that there is no visible tumor spread beyond that removed, but > 50% of the removed lymph nodes tested + for cancer cells. Dr.'s prognosis is 50%-60% 5-year survival. Chemo is recomended, but will only improve the survival rate by 3-8%. I do know that there will be a small but significant % in my situation will that will survive 30+ years.
THis book clearly endorses surgery, chemo, and/or radiation to stop advanced cancer. THe question is what next? I have three young children. Should I do nothing and just hope that I fall on the + side of stats? Or do I take aggressive action to try and put my self in the positive side? Choose for yourself. As for me, I will fight with all of my strength to beat this. I am a believer, and my ultimate hope is in God, but he gave me a mind to think, and a strong will to fight and live. TO that end, I ask, can a good detox program followed by a healthy nutritious diet possibly be harmful? I think not. Is the potential harm from follow-up chemo worth only 3-8% increase in 5-year survival? I am still praying and thinking about this one. I may forgo the chemo, but only after many consultations with the oncologist. I don't dismiss the imortance of the medical establishment, neither did Anne.
I find the diet to be a bit too radical, and am reading other books ("Juice FOr Life") that allow some fish and poultry in the meals, along with more reasonable food mixing, and more cooked foods. However, the other books seem to align with the this one regarding cleansing and juice recomendations, and emphasis on raw fruits and veggies. I don't look forward to the juice fast cleansing, but honestly, can it hurt? Might it help?
