Quest for the Cure by
Publication Date: 2013-10-16
This original fourteen chapter book is a brief, slightly autobiographic tale of medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, and breast cancer patients in a well-established cancer center in Texas, who pursued the goal of cure for breast cancer. The evolution of improved outcomes in the treatment of microscopic metastatic breast cancer is also the story of the development of adjuvant chemotherapy for post-operative breast disease. The adjuvant therapy of breast cancer came about with the realization that this malignancy, when diagnosed in most patients, had spread beyond the confines of the primary cancer. Patient histories in the form of Case Studies are used to illustrate certain issues. Devoted to the development of the chemotherapeutic regimens that currently are used to treat patients with advanced breast cancer.

Dave Faber and Robert McGehee were meant to be together: Less than two years after their first date, they were married. They ate out together, went to movies, and did everything else a loving couple does. They even decided to train together for the Houston Marathon in 2006. Like every couple, they expected to face hard times, but neither was prepared for Robert's diagnosis of esophageal cancer. But just like everything else, this was a fight they would wage together. After learning what he was up against, Robert suggested to Dave that he keep friends and family informed about their battle against the disease. This account draws on that correspondence and includes intimate details of their battle that may have otherwise been lost. Dave stands by Robert's side through surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and physical therapy. Throughout his illness, their intimacy and love for each other grows. Whether you're suffering from a serious disease or illness or caring for someone who is, Dave and Robert's love story and spiritual journey will inspire you to keep your faith in each other and in the world around you even through the most difficult times.
