“Make your Will, settle your affairs,” this devastating advice was given to the young judge Wolfgang Heinemann at the age of thirty three by his doctors. The diagnosis: an incurable brain tumour; life expectancy not even one year. But the father of two small sons is not prepared to accept his fate. Seventeen years later he tells his story. Three brain operations are performed on him; his unrelenting fight, his strength of will and his often wise distrust of medical matters have brought results. He acquires extensive knowledge of cancer therapies, and leads a happy and fulfilling life with his family, travels a great deal and gains more knowledge of cancer treatment; he makes his own personal observations on death and dying. All this leads up to his life-saving operation in January 2005. Today the author is cured. The book provides invaluable advice, not only for cancer sufferers and their families, but also for every single reader. Important information is included on effective cancer therapy and other things. The book gives the readers the courage to fight against the deadly disease and to go on living.
