Our sincerest gratitude to the wonderful doctors and other individuals without whose conscientious and dedicated time and assistance, this book would not have been possible:
Dr. Vincent T. DeVita, Jr., former director of the National Cancer Institute, and his very capable staff who assisted in reviewing this manuscript.
The outstanding medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, pathologist, diagnostic radiologist, surgeon and psychologist who, even though extremely busy, took their valuable time and meticulously went over this book, offering valuable comments and suggestions.
The well-known and beloved minister who helped us examine the spiritual aspects of a life-threatening illness.
Our daughter, Linda Lyon, whose countless hours of editing and efforts in publishing made this book a reality.
And particularly to all those wonderful doctors who donated their efforts at the R.A. Bloch Cancer Management Center, from whose guidance and inspiration we were able to gain the knowledge to assemble this information.
