June 1997, Paul Kraus was diagnosed with mesothelioma and given only a few months to live. He and his family were stunned by the shocking diagnosis, but they were not ready to give up. They researched different therapies for this cancer and learned about chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and various complementary and alternative treatments. From this knowledge, Mr. Kraus worked with his doctors to create his own regimen to heal his mesothelioma and twelve years later he is alive and enjoys a good quality of life.
In his book Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A Patient's Guide, Mr. Kraus offers practical advice on what he did to beat the odds so that others can too. Today, "Surviving Mesothelioma" is the best-selling mesothelioma book in the world. Dr. Bernie Siegel said, "Paul Kraus' book has all the information a cancer patient needs to have in order to learn what survival behavior is about." Read more testimonialsFree Copies!
