A New Approach to Personalized Care

REIMAGINE CANCER SUVIVAL
That's what cancer survivor Mark Roby wants you to do. On December 30, 2002, Roby was diagnosed with one of the rarest cancers in the world and told it was unresponsive to all known chemotherapy. His oncologist suggested he "accept the inevitable," but Roby thought otherwise.
Quickly realizing that conventional thinking would do little to help him, he created his own, personalized treatment plan targeting his specific tumor. And he survived!
This is Roby's story, but more importantly it's his compilation of the many resources he painstakingly discovered and wants to share with others who are fighting similar battles. With a medical insider's knowledge of what it takes to stay alive when all the odds are against you, Lifelines to Cancer Survival is the first book to help guide cancer patients toward advanced modalities and testing, such as genetic profiling, personalized vaccines, and more. Roby wants to lead the charge of patients directing and supervising their own care.
Recensioner i media
"Mark Roby, an odds-defying Radical Remission survivor himself, has given cancer patients a true gift with his book, Lifelines to Cancer Survival. This is the perfect guidebook for anyone feeling overwhelmed by a cancer diagnosis. Mark takes you by the hand, giving you personalized information for every step along the way."
- Kelly Turner, PhD, New York Times best-selling author of Radical Remission:
Surviving Cancer Against All Odds
"Mark's story is truly inspiring, and not just his continued sur-thrival-ship, but his willingness to share how to create a more personalized approach to cancer care. He empowers the reader to research and take charge of their fate with an integrative approach. In each phase of the experience, he gives several ways to approach healing. And throughout the book, he answers some of the biggest questions for people who are dealing with cancer - from finding the right doctor and asking for more personal treatments, to relaxation techniques, exercise, and eating a plant-rich diet. All of these methods combine to help your immune system thrive."
- Suzanne Boothby, author of The After Cancer Diet, and Dr. Richard Boothby, cancer physician for more than 25 years

"The concepts in this book, and from Mark Roby, were a complete game changer for all of us, a surviving cancer family. They really opened our eyes about how to fight this battle, and we are indebted. Everything from the 'Triad of Survival' and having backup plans, to building our team and becoming our own experts made all the difference. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. . ."
- Marge Casteel, advanced cholangiocarcinoma
"Mark Roby's 'Lifelines' have kept me afloat. He has taken his own death sentence, turned it around, and used what he has learned to help others. His counsel has been critical towards my survival."
