What Readers Are Saying...
"I laughed and cried, but mostly laughed and cheered, and ended up feeling less afraid of ever getting cancer."
"The Quinn's exacting research in the world of 'cancer' has increased my knowledge base 10 fold of the treatment options available. The real gem was this couple's soulful exploration of the issues surrounding being a 'cancer patient' including being a self-advocate, family dissent in treatment decisions, the business of medicine, and COURAGE. I recommend it to healthcare practitioners, patients, and patient's families."
"There are choices regarding cancer treatment and cancer prevention and this book not only explains these choices, but gives you the resources to further explore the options. It takes the mystery out of 'alternative' medicine and gives you the courage to question 'conventional' medicine. A big thank you to the Quinns for challenging mainstream cancer treatment, pouring their hearts and souls into extensive research, and most of all for sharing this information with the rest of us."
"The reason everyone so fears cancer is because we have seen repeatedly the serious limitations and inefficacy of conventional treatment...I personally am grateful for Hollie's story and information so that I can make more intelligent cancer prevention decisions as well as treatment decisions if I am ever diagnosed with cancer."
"You Did What? is also a tutorial--teaching us not only how to respond to a cancer diagnosis, but how to live life in general."
From the back cover:
"This is a story about a young woman with a very common but deadly illness who did a very uncommon thing when faced with that disease. She disagreed with her doctors, rejected their treatment advice, and chose her own path to getting well again. She did this in the face of paralyzing fears of dying and leaving behind a motherless daughter. She did this in the face of the daunting task of researching and choosing a better treatment. She did this in the face of the intense pressures of social conformity telling her to listen to her doctors. What she did was extraordinarily brave and forward-thinking. In effect, she forged a better path through a thicket of fear, complexity, and pressure. She forged this path with the help of her husband, working as a team and exhibiting unyielding togetherness. This book chronicles the journey they took together, back to health."
