Living Proof?: An Obstreperous Patient's Fight Against Cancer by Michael Gearin-Tosh
At the age of 54, Michael Gearin-Tosh discovered he had bone marrow cancer. This is the story of his quest to manage and overcome his illness; his determination to not to be coerced into joining programmes of invasive treatments; and his resolve to stand up to the NHS, specialists and colleagues who encouraged him to follow the conventional route as a cancer patient. The author selected a number of regimes and devised his own routine and diets, and six years on he still survives, despite being told he should "expect to die soon". This is not a "how-to" book, but an account of one man's quest to listen to his inner voice of intuition.
