For over thirty years, the Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy (FACT) has acted as a consumer advocacy group, educating cancer patients about alternative therapies and their rights as patients. Although traditional medical groups and government agencies have often ignored or disregarded the groundbreaking work of many complementary medical researchers, FACT has provided these pioneers with a platform to be heard. The foundation's intention has never been to discredit conventional medicine, but rather to scrutinize the alternative therapies, and then make the information available. In this way, cancer patients and their families can make informed, responsible decisions regarding treatment options. Alternative medicine has made certain headway into the realm of traditional medical services, but there still remains a major gap in the distribution of information on noninvasive treatments. To meet this challenge, Ruth Sackman, the cofounder and President of FACT, has written Rethinking Cancer to answer the many questions still facing today's growing number of cancer patients. Rethinking Cancer supplies pertinent information on a wide variety of topics, including the major role of nutrition in health, how to repair the body's biological breakdowns, and ways to control one's own psychological influences on health. It provides valid research drawn from around the world, and offers specific advice on dealing with both the disease and the medical practitioner. Rethinking Cancer is a valuable resource from a trusted organization. It provides important information at a time when that information may be crucial.
