The Activist Cancer Patient:
How to Take Charge of Your Treatment
One in three Americans will be diagnosed with cancer during his or her lifetime. After
diagnosis patients usually place their treatment completely in the hands of their doctor.
Cancer survivor Beverly Zakarian asserts that cancer patients can greatly increase their
survival chances by taking an active role in their treatment. It's amazing how many new
treatment options exist but are hard to find, depriving many cancer suffers of the life-
saving care they so desperately need. this book educates cancer patients on locating sources
of legitimate cancer treatments that run the gamut from little-known ones to the very latest
experimental therapies or drug trials.
