About the Book
I hope this book serves many purposes. I wanted to share my story of beating cancer because I think it is a good story. I meet new people almost every day who are fighting cancer and I would like to help them all. If all you get out of this book is the inspiration and desire to help others fighting cancer or help inspire your own battle with cancer, I will be happy.
I am not a medical doctor, a naturopath, a nutritionist, a meditation guru, a priest, nor some kind of healer. I am just someone who wants to share all of the amazing things I have come across that helped me and others beat cancer.
Nothing in this book is absolute. There are so many new and old discoveries when it comes to the fight against cancer. I will focus on the top main contributors to beating my cancer, and potentially yours. I will also touch on some other minor contributing factors in summary format.
Many of the ideas in this book do not belong to me. There are over fifty contributors to the ideas I will share with you. I will try and give proper credit where it is due. My intention is not to take these ideas and make them my own, but rather to inform and present the best of the best.
All of the proceeds from the sale of this book and any other related materials will go directly to the Terry Ames Care Fund. This fund is administered by the Northern Cancer Foundation. The fund is set up to help families with their financial needs when they are battling this terrible disease. Donations can be made anytime by calling the Northern Cancer Foundation at 705-523-4673. Tax receipts are available for any donation over $20.
2nd Edition of Beating Cancer - My Survival Guid is now available for Pre-Order
What I hope to accomplish with this book:
I want to educate and guide cancer patients and their caregivers through our medical system. Your oncologist will be your point person. Our system is not perfect, but the medical staff, nurses, doctors, nutritionists all have an important role. Chemotherapy, radiation therapy or surgery may be a necessary part of your treatment. I am here to help you to understand and ask the right questions. Hopefully your medical staff will understand the importance of you doing your due diligence in seeking the best treatments. These include, but are not limited to; conventional, experimental, complementary and integrative treatments. I will try to help you communicate with your health care professionals and make sure you both understand the big picture.
I want to motivate you! I want to lift your spirits and help you visualize that moment when you or your loved one will be cancer-free. It is possible. You just have to taste and feel that victory. Maybe the most important thing that has come out of my triumph over cancer is the ability to inspire others in their fight against cancer.
I want to assist you in understanding complementary and integrative care. Many of the things we talk about are right here in Canada or the United States. I am talking about mind, body, and soul. You cannot beat cancer for good until you defeat the underlying causes of cancer, whether it is stress, environmental, or nutritional. Your cancer battle is dealing with the immediate danger right now, but also changing or eliminating the factors that have contributed to the cancer. You don’t just want to beat cancer for now, you want to defeat it for the rest of your life!
I want to raise money to help support families in need. It is difficult to understand the financial pressures that a family faces when someone is diagnosed with cancer. Time off work, parking, trips, and integrative/complementary care can all place huge burdens on family finances. If you know of a family that can use our help, please contact us.
I hope you enjoy my story and pass this book onto others who may need it. Thank you.
