Overview

In 1978, Richard Bloch, co-founder and honorary chairman of the board of H&R Block, Inc., was diagnosed with cancer and told he had only a few months to live. With the help of his wife, Annette, and the doctors who said he could lick the disease, and with a stubborn determination to survive, Bloch waged a bitter, painful, two-year war on the insidious disease.

He was completely cured.

So dramatic was his fight and recovery that Bloch and his wife decided to spend their lives helping to convince others that they too can cope with cancer.

The purpose of this book is to advise cancer patients, their relatives and friends what could be involved and what some of their options are. It is also to advise doctors and other professionals what reactions there could be to statements or treatments. The more knowledge we have about this dreaded disease, the better we can help ourselves and others cope.

In 1978, Richard Bloch, co-founder of H & R Block, Inc., was diagnosed with “terminal” lung cancer. With the help of his wife, Annette, doctors who said he could beat the cancer, and his own determination, Bloch waged a bitter two-year war on the insidious disease. So dramatic was his fight and recovery that Bloch and his wife devoted their lives to helping people who have been diagnosed with cancer. They founded R. A. Bloch Cancer Foundation with this in mind. Visit blochcancer.org for more information.


+1-800-433-0464 is the number for every newly diagnosed cancer patient. It is a totally free service (cash donations are never solicited) operated by volunteers who have had cancer. The goal is to match up the newly diagnosed patient with an individual who has recovered from the same type of cancer. The purpose is not to recommend specific treatments or physicians, but to figuratively put their arm aroundthe new patient and help them make the myriad of decisions they will have to make if they are going to have a chance to beat this disease.
