REIMAGINE CANCER SURVIVAL

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.

About the Author:


From a very young age, Mark Roby was intrigued with nature, health, and science. While working as a lab assistant and volunteering at an inner city hospital emergency room during his college years, Roby was drawn to the practice of medicine. He became a Physician Assistant and later obtained an advanced diploma in Naturopathy.

Roby was living in New York in 1986 when he read some of the works of Dr. Gerald Jampolsky, psychiatrist and founder of The Center for Attitudinal Healing. Later, Roby and Jampolsky became friends. And in 1991, Roby cofounded the Metro Detroit Center for Attitudinal Healing with Dr. Laurie Pappas.

In 2002, Roby was diagnosed with one of the rarest sarcomas (liver and lungs) in the world. He was told he did not have long to live and was offered only palliative chemotherapy. He knew he would have to go way beyond the standard of care if he wanted to survive. Roby became an incessant researcher and created crucial strategies that are still keeping him alive. He has had consults with hospitals in both the U.S. and Europe, and a liver transplant.

For the past three decades, Roby has held clinical positions at teaching hospitals and has served as an integrative clinician and consultant. He has lectured extensively for over 20 years on Attitudinal Healing and integrative medicine. He is also an active member of The Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine.

Roby is available for speaking engagements and consultations and can be contacted through his website (LifelinestoCancerSurvival.com).

Review:

"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

"In Lifelines to Cancer Survival, Mark Roby offers a comprehensive and inspirational blueprint for becoming your own best health advocate. Speaking from dramatic experience as a former patient, Mark walks the talk, offering readers a variety of ways to find personalized care. This is an articulate and heartfelt work that belongs in every library." -- Verne Varona, author of Nature's Cancer-Fighting Food "Mark Roby's 'Lifelines' have been a godsend. His research and strategies have been invaluable towards my survival. Mark's innovative ideas and novel approaches have saved his life and others. This book is a must read for all cancer patients and their caregivers." -- Jane Smith, stage IV gastrointestinal carcinoma

"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 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

"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
