Free, yes, truly free eBook by one of the founders of H&R Block and his wife. After a dire metastatic cancer diagnosis, Richard Block refused to take the death sentence diagnosis provided by his doctors. Instead, he determined his fate through attitude and, although some of us do not apply war metaphors to our diseases, fighting back with his mind body connection, he’s survived as of the writing of this book,19 years. Stated specially, the introduction insures the reader understands that the writers wanted to share their experiences to the benefit of others with a dire diagnosis and that this in and of itself is the goal in publishing the book at their time expense. They’ve gotten and expect no financial or notoriety gain.
It’s short and very readable, and although I’m only into chapter two and I have no real feedback as of yet, you’ve got nothing to lose by reading this and something to gain, which is little in the life of a metser, and that’s hope.
As my abdomen fills itself with Ascites fluid this week, I realize Ibrance, my current chemotherapy, probably stopped stabbing Canferateau with a stake through the heart. It’s time to find some other form of therapy. While my heart dips into the shallow end of the pity pool, it’s not lost on me how the universe plops serendipitously some hope in a book to help me reestablish my strong belief in self healing through the mind body connection.
Thanks Mr. Block. Your survivor’s wisdom investment realizes huge market gains with one of those people who put a time, a very dear resource, into reading your book. At first glance I don’t think it’s wasted.
