  2. I am a current cancer patient diagnosed with pancreatic on June 14, 2018. Today, I picked up a copy of your two books at Simmons Cancer Institute in Springfield, Illinois. I immediately read ” Cancer….there’s hope”, beginning and finishing it this afternoon. This is by far one of the best publications regarding cancer I have come across. So encouraging and validating. I cannot thank you enough for having put together such a phenomenal book and for all the amazing supplemental work you have done on behalf of cancer patients. I am not being treated at Simmons where I came across your book. I am, however, receiving treatment from Springfield Clinic. Would it be possible for me to obtain several copies of your three books to leave in the reading library at Springfield Clinic’s Cancer Center. People donate books and magazines to this library but I have never seen a copy of your publications and cannot imagine how many cancer patients and those who love and support them may benefit from reading your books.
