The Dreaded "C" Word

In June 1997, Paul Kraus heard the dreaded word mesothelioma. Cancer in any form is always a very scary word and is usually a death sentence. Paul was given only a few months to live. After the initial shock wore off, Paul and his family decided to "fight the good fight". After doing extensive research on mesothelioma cancer, knowing he did not want chemotherapy, surgery or radiation, he learning about alternative treatments. Paul and his doctors worked to create his own regimen to heal him.

Twelve years later, he has regained an excellent quality of life. Wanting to pass on his knowledge to others, Paul wrote "Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A Patient's Guide". His book is currently the best selling mesothelioma book in the world. To help others rally against their mesothelioma asbestos diagnosis, a free copy of Paul Kraus's book is available to patients who have been newly diagnosed with mesothelioma.

A mesothelioma prognosis can be positive when a person is open to all forms of treatment and therapy and is willing to investigate and commit to one that will give positive results.
