On Our Shelves Now
When an X-ray of a sore arm quickly leads to a diagnosis of Stage IV kidney cancer--one which would soon affect his bones, his lungs, lymph nodes, and brain--Peter Rooney's life will never be the same. Faced with the prognosis of an incurable disease and armed only with the will to fight back, Immunopatient chronicles Peter's desperate quest for hope and healing, and the experimental treatment that will give him a chance to strike back at his disease. Detailing both the medical breakthroughs that provided Peter with cutting-edge treatment and his inspirational quest to conquer both his fear and his illness through mindfulness and positive visualization, Immunopatient is a gripping memoir, one that offers new hope to cancer patients everywhere to never give up looking for answers. Peter's story, both humble and human, showcases the heights of medical science and the depths of human endurance, proving that anything is possible as long as you keep moving forward.
