In this short video Richard Block, founder of H & R Bloch, shares his experience surviving terminal, inoperable, incurable lung cancer. He was told by his Doctor in 1978, that he should go home and put his affairs in order…that he had about three months to live. His oncologist had ruled out surgery and radiation as options.
Fortunately he decided not to accept his doctor’s prognosis. If he had passively done so his story would have ended much sooner.
He was diagnosed in 1978. He died in 2004 of heart disease, 26 years after his terminal prognosis.
By the way, if you visit the R.A.Bloch Cancer Foundation (Please note that Bloch is spelled with an “h” at the end here) website you’ll find many helpful books that you can download or order paperback copies of FREE. There are other helpful resources too.
Can your doctor really predict how long you have to live?
Please also read an October repost I did entitled Dr. Keith Block on cancer survival statistics: can your physician really predict how long you have to live? Dr. Block has dealt with advanced cancers for over thirty two years and is considered by many to be the father of integrative cancer treatment and is the co-founder of The Block Center for Integrative Cancer Treatment. I’ve run into case after case where patients have amazed their oncologists and lived many years and sometimes decades beyond their predicted death.
Please note that this story doesn’t include any comments on integrative treatment strategies (i.e. science based dietary and lifestyle changes). It was posted just to give examples of the possibility of surviving despite a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer.
