Description: Strong patient consumer activism will increase anyone's chances of survival when battling cancer -- "Fight For Your Life" shows readers how to get the best cancer care available.

As far as Peter Teeley and his doctors knew, the fifty-one-year-old father of four was to undergo a routine appendectomy. When he awoke from surgery, he found his wife sitting at the foot of his hospital bed, bearing devastating news: What had appeared on the MRI scan was not an inflamed appendix but in fact stage III colon cancer. This was the beginning of Peter Teeley's battle against the disease. What he learned about the most effective ways to combat any type of cancer is the subject of "Fight for Your Life".

"Fight for Your Life" shows patients and families how to take an active approach to combatting cancer. Studies prove that most people don't receive state-of-the-art treatment because of doctors' personal biases for or against certain treatments, insufficiently equipped hospitals, physicians' lack of experience, and insurance companies' growing tendency to refuse coverage for certain types of treatments. "Fight for Your Life" will save lives by warning patients and their families about these obstacles, and by helping them reclaim control of their cancer care.

Readers will find empowerment, hope, and comfort in "Fight for Your Life's" message. Learning about particular types of cancer and making the most informed decisions possible will not only improve the quality of life during the illness and assure readers they are doing everything in their power to help themselves -- it will also improve their chances of survival.
