- Understanding Myeloma
Written for people who have been diagnosed with myeloma (also known as multiple myeloma or myelomatosis), this booklet discusses the causes and symptoms, the tests used for diagnosis, treatments - chemotherapy, steroid therapy and radiotherapy - relief of symptoms, and rehabilitation and recovery. The last section explores the emotions people often feel when they have cancer, and suggests some ways in which people can help themselves. There is also a list of useful addresses and phone numbers of organizations to contact for further help.

- Living Proof : A Medical Mutiny
The book's author, Gearin-Tosh, a tutor at St. Catherine's College, Oxford, was diagnosed with myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow) and told that if he did not begin chemotherapy immediately, he would be dead in less than a year. The recommended treatment, while probably extending his life somewhat, would not cure the condition. A second specialist confirmed the original prognosis, but the author rejected the proposed treatment after a former Oxford pupil consulted a cancer statistician who warned, "If your friend touches chemotherapy, he's a goner." Interwoven with engaging anecdotes from his professional life, Gearin-Tosh details his research into the world of alternative medicine, a journey that led him to Chinese breathing exercises and acupuncture. The treatment that he credits with saving his life he found in A Cancer Therapy, by Max Gerson, a doctor who died in 1958. Based on the daily drinking of freshly made juices and taking several coffee enemas a day, the Gerson Diet also includes a variety of supplements. Despite the time-consuming nature of this restrictive regime, eight years later Gearin-Tosh is alive and pursuing an active professional life. He is careful to point out that while this program is working for him, "each person should explore his own way with their physician." Gearin-Tosh's detailed, engaging memoir of a search for his own cure will inspire readers to take the time to consider their own treatments.

- Going for the Cure
Early in 1986, Thompson, a New York City orthopedic surgeon, discovered that she had multiple myeloma, a fatal bone-marrow cancer--and resolved to fight it. Although no one stricken with myeloma had ever been cured, the determined author--after achieving remission by an initial regimen of chemotherapy--entered a six-month experimental program to seek a cure. An excruciating physical and mental ordeal, her treatment required massive doses of chemotherapy, radiation and antibiotics designed to eliminate all of her diseased bone marrow except for a small quantity that was treated with antibodies outside her body and later transplanted back to regenerate the marrow supply. Writing in the form of a present-tense, first-person journal, in her dual role as patient and professional Thompson conveys an intense personal involvement combined with a scientific detachment and attention to technical detail. A year after her marrow transplant, she was pronounced cured.

- Dancing with cancer : a healing through visualization
Robert Elliott was diagnosed in 1980 as having a deadly blood cancer, multiple myeloma. By any statistical standards, his ensuing life should have been a short one. Yet for seventeen years, through a combination of traditional and non-traditional methods, he remained healthy and symptom-free. "DANCING WITH CANCER," while not a "how-to" book in the usual way, has proved inspiring to patients with cancer and other serious illnesses who have wanted to participate actively in their own healing. It has also been praised by therapists and other health-care providers, and by inquirers into the mysteries of mind-body medicine. Harville Hendrix, author of "Getting the Love You Want," calls it "an exciting narrative of spiritual discovery and healing. Fascinating!" Carol Kershaw, Co-Director of the Milton Erickson Institute of Houston, says it's "an honest, passionate, hopeful, brave and poetic narrative about 'dancing on the edge' of life and death."
