Fighting Cancer (13th printing 2008) was written by Annette and Richard Bloch, co-founder of H&R Block. In 1978, Bloch was diagnosed with ‘inoperable’ lung cancer and told he had 90 days to live. Luckily he sought a second opinion and, after two years of arduous treatment, he was completely cured. This book is written for and dedicated to the people with cancer who want to do everything in their power to help themselves and their doctor so they will have the best chance of beating their disease.
This book is a product of Dick and Annette Bloch’s own experience with cancer. The overriding message that cancer patients must utilize all available information to seek out the best possible care and do everything they can to maximize their chances for therapeutic success is a vital one. This is a strong personal statement about striving for life. It should motivate many cancer patients to obtain state-of-the-art treatment and to play an active part in increasing their own chances of being among the growing number of survivors.
