In 1978, Richard Bloch, co-founder and honorary chairman of the board of H&R Block, Inc., contracted cancer. With the help of his wife, Annette, and the doctors who said he could lick the disease, and with a stubborn determination to survive, Bloch waged a bitter, painful, two-year war on the insidious disease.
He was completely cured.
So dramatic was his fight and recovery that Bloch and his wife, Annette, decided to spend their lives helping to convince others that they too can cope with cancer.
The purpose of this book is to advise cancer patients, their relatives and friends what could be involved and what some of their options are. It is also to advise doctors and other professionals what reactions there could be to statements or treatments. The more knowledge we have about this dreaded disease, the better we can help ourselves and others cope.

I just finished reading your book, Cancer ... there's hope, and never felt so much hope since I got this disease. I had been so up-tight before, thinking the worst. I think this book should be in every clinic waiting room across the country for people like us to read.
I want another copy to pass along to a friend. My book shall remain with me, for if my cancer should return I know I will get strength to see it through, by just re-reading your book.
May God bless you, as this book was the best Christmas present I could receive. --Joyce Babe, Franksville, WI
Without this book my brother-in-law would have placed too much stock in one doctor, and probably would have never made it. At least he is now trying and is determined to make it. He knows he may die anyway but he's so proud to say that if he does die, at least he will go down 'living' instead of 'dying.' Thanks to you and Mrs. Bloch for all your courage and strength and support. God bless you and Mrs. Bloch. --Caleen Geismann, Highland, IL
Please, someone pass along to Mr. R. Bloch that his book is the most helpful, informative and rewarding book I have read on cancer. I, too, have 'recovered' from cancer and only wish I had such a book to read five years ago when I first learned that I had cancer. I am in a volunteer group we are small but very efficient known as CanCare and the question presented to me most often is 'How do you know so much about cancer?' I have had training. I read and I listen. But I want you book to pass along to patients who have just learned they have cancer. The answers to most of the questions are to be found in Cancer ... there's hope. --Margaret M. Sherertz, Charlotte, NC
