Yeah, feels like medicine after death for me. I lost my adoptive dad to cancer last year and he could have made do with some information from this book. If only I had come across it earlier.
I wish I did too before losing my family one by one because of cancer. At least there could've been hope. I'm so sorry about your dad :(

I feel like the information is timely and in need of wide publicity. Especially for health maintenance.

I think it would have been nice information to know, but I don't think this "cure" is any different from the hundreds of other remedies out there. Try as much as you can, try what makes sense.

I think that this information would have been a good thing to have read and had the option of trying and thinking about, but like with every other alternative option, everyone is different. You have to look at what is working and what isn't working for you, and look at your own beliefs before making your own decision on whether to try an alternative option or not.

Since cancer survivors escaped with their lives, I'm sure they would be highly interested in anything related to cancer inorder to face a possible reoccurence.

My grandmother passed away from lung cancer several years ago. She underwent traditional care which caused her a lot of pain. I wish I had known more about alternative treatments back then because she could have possibly been spared some pain.

Having lost family members to cancer, I think it would been good to know about the alternative treatments available. Maybe u wouldn't have lost them that early.

My aunt is a cancer survivor, and I would totally recommend this book to her. She actually did veer in the direction of alternate medicine, incorporating her treatments with our acclaimed cultural practices. I distinctly remember reading about a Jamaican doctor who was researching the use of alternate remedies in medicine, and found some success in the cancer research field.
And in the end, we were all just humans... Drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.

Coming from a family with history of cancer and death because of it, I salute the survivors including my relatives and I wish will all prayers that there will be a treatment for longer life.

Cancer survivors will find this book relevant thus are likely to identify with it.
