For decades, standard therapies have remained powerless against advanced cancer. But in the 1890s, an American surgeon showed that terminal patients could be cured by stimulating their immune systems. The treatment? A

This book has something for everyone: for people who have cancer; for the people who love them; for people afraid of getting cancer (who's not?) and, justifiably, terrified of the debilitating and largely ineffective treatments; and for people who would like an updated, thorough literature review of how the immune system works and, specifically, how it responds to cancer. The latter is a fairly recent idea, as you may know if you've met with oncologists in the past 10+ years who have looked at ...more

Amazing book reads like a novel. I could not put it down. So much life saving information. Cancer explained in simple terms so you do not need a P.H.D. to comprehend. All of the newest research compiled in one book. I felt inspired and empowered after reading the book. Of course the fear still comes in waves, thankfully this book gave me tremendous hope. The story is all about courage and sharing information to help others. Take the leap and get it. You will not regret it.

Truly inspiring. As an aspiring physician scientist, I have a broad interest in cancer research. Immunotherapy is a hot topic issue in the field, and this book surmises the struggle of a couple as they traverse the current field of modern cancer care. A harrowing journey for the couple as they undergo trials and tribulations on their undying quest to find a cure.
