Dalla quarta di copertina
In 1995 Larry Burkett was diagnosed with kidney cancer, which had spread to his scapula, and his hope of survival was not favorable. Based on
his own personal cancer survival journey, Nothing to Fear was written to help shorten the learning curve for others. What had Burkett learned?
Well, among other things, he found that:
the single most important factor in cancer survival is faith
the opposite of faith is fear and it must be conquered
not all cancer treatments work for everyone
technology improves daily and offers more varied treatment options
some alternative therapies offer much promise
It is these time-proven, common sense lessons that Burkett shares with readers in this candidly personal book. Whether you or someone you know has received a cancer diagnosis, this book offers a healthy dose of wisdom. Or, as Burkett would define it, useable knowledge offered by someone
who has been where you are.
Burketts theme, which rings throughout this handy volume like a chorus: No medical doctor is really responsible for your health; you are responsible for your health. Doctors may help guide, give alternatives, advise, and administer whatever therapy you choose, but its your body, and you must make the final decisions.
