RICK SHAPIRO: How 20 Late-Stage Terminal Cancer Patients Beat Cancer
Hear Rick Shapiro share stories and wisdom of courageous terminal cancer patients and their specialists who beat the odds on The Dr. Theresa NIcassio Show.
Rick Shapiro, J.D. is a former practicing attorney who became passionate about ways to combat and prevent cancer when his world was personally challenged by this often deadly disease. Determined to crack the code of cancer by learning from cancer patients who beat the odds and the professionals who helped them do it, the trajectory of Rick’s life was forever changed and culminated in his inspiring book Hope Never Dies.
Advocate for Cancer Patients
Because of his personal experiences and discoveries about alternative approaches to treating cancer patients, Shapiro became a tireless advocate who continually seeks to educate the public about proven medical remedies that have been found to save and extend lives that most people don’t know about. Rick is a member of numerous cancer associations and the Board of Directors of the Annie Appleseed Project, a non-profit organization that educates people about personalized, integrative and innovative, science-based cancer therapies.
“Breathe – You Are Not A Statistic. There Are Various Ways to Fight Cancer.”
Discovering Safe Evidence-Based Treatments for Cancer Patients
While not a medical professional, Shapiro is an everyday hero who has become a leading consultant, researcher and educator in the field of safe, evidence-based, integrative and alternative cancer treatments. He has engaged in extensive research about therapies that are extending and saving lives and enhancing the quality of life for cancer patients that are beyond statistical norms generally found in the conventional cancer world.
Unwilling to leave a stone unturned, Rick also collaborates with internationally renowned doctors and researchers who are at the forefront of efficacious therapies. He has consulted with and coached cancer patients from all over the world, including China, New Zealand, Okinawa, Europe, throughout the United States and in his hometown, Scottsdale, Arizona seeking every perspective on the subject that he can.
Cancer Patients Who Beat The Odds
Shapiro is a passionate and tireless advocate who continually seeks to educate the public about proven medical remedies that have saved and extended the lives of many others. He has interviewed hundreds of people who have stymied metastatic cancer challenges and who are thriving many years later, despite being given veritable death sentences by their conventional doctors. He believes there is much to be learned from terminal and late-stage cancer patients who have “beaten the odds.”
“Rick Shapiro’s amazing book is a wonderful and important reference for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer. It is a must read for everyone in the field of oncology, and all my patients, present and future…Your life or that of someone you know may depend on it.”
~ROBERT ZIEVE, M.D. Medical Director, Partners in Integrative Cancer Therapies
Providing a refreshing perspective and possibilities for cancer patients who seek to become knowledgeable participants in their own health care strategies, Hope Never Dies is a compelling-inspirational book that chronicles the true stories of 20 courageous cancer patients who “beat the odds” after receiving terminal cancer prognoses. The book also features exclusive interviews with five internationally renowned cutting-edge cancer specialists, who offer illuminating insights regarding safe evidence-based integrative and complementary cancer therapies that are helping save the lives of many who are not expected to survive.
This book provides real hope to all cancer patients, inform readers about medical treatments and therapies beyond and including the “standard of care.” and empower patients to become knowledgeable participants in their own health care strategies.
Finally, Hope Never Dies provides patients with a checklist of critical questions to ask their prospective cancer doctors, before choosing a cancer-fighting regimen.
“What a powerful testament to the strength of the human spirit and the true meaning of hope. The stories of terminal cancer ‘thrivers’ along with therapies and commentary by leading cancer specialists, makes Hope Never Dies a must read for anyone living with cancer, their families, and the medical community at large.”
~Tieraona Low Dog, M.D., Fellowship Director
Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine & Cancer Thriver
“…an inspiration not only for patients and their families but a critical message for the conventional oncology community to awaken to the value of a truly integrative approach that is too frequently absent in cancer care today.”
