Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) August 31, 2006
In 1997, Paul Kraus was diagnosed with mesothelioma. The cancer was so widespread that doctors told him there was little hope and he should go home and get his affairs in order. Rather than giving up, Paul created his own path to healing. Today, over nine years later, he continues to enjoy a good quality of life.
Paul wrote an acclaimed book about his diagnosis and healing called: “Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers – A Patient’s Guide.” This book is available on Amazon.com and is the best-selling mesothelioma book in the world. Wanting to inspire more patients, Paul took the unusual step of hosting free bi-monthly teleconferences so that newly diagnosed mesothelioma patients would be able to speak directly to him.
During the most recent conference on August 22nd, Paul described the steps he took to heal his mesothelioma and answered questions from patients and their loved ones. Topics included: new chemotherapy drugs, holistic approaches, vitamins and other supplements, new clinical trials, anti-angiogenesis therapies, mind-body medicine, doctor-patient relationships, and more. While Paul is quick to point out that he is not a doctor and he does not provide medical advice, he inspires patients with his own story of success and survival.
At the end of the teleconference, participants thanked Paul for his words of hope and inspiration and for setting the example that mesothelioma does not have to mean a death sentence.
