HOLLYWOOD, Calif. /Publishers Newswire/ — Lange Productions announces “Be a Survivor – Lung Cancer Treatment Guide” (ISBN 978-0-9819489-1-1). The book’s uniqueness is the positive, upbeat, encouraging tone that motivates and empowers lung cancer patients and their loved ones. Until now, lung cancer patients were under-informed about their options, and under-motivated to seek out cures. Many struggle under the negative stigma that their disease was self-inflicted. Physicians may approach them with less optimism, citing poor survival rates, leaving patients uninformed, and under-encouraged.

“Today lung cancer is not the automatic death sentence it once was,” says author, Dr. Vladimir Lange. “New treatments, new drugs, and earlier diagnosis make survival much more likely than it was just a few years ago.”

“The doctor told me I had eight months to live,” remembers Ed, a lung cancer survivor. “That was eleven years ago.”

Covering the entire cancer experience, Be a Survivor – Lung Cancer Treatment Guide features clear explanations, outstanding graphics, and candid testimonials by those who “have been there before.”

“It’s certainly one of the best lung cancer patient guides I’ve seen in my 13 years of working with lung cancer patients,” says Win Boerckel, Program Coordinator at CancerCare.

Be a Survivor books (breast and colorectal cancers), adds to its arsenal the Lung Cancer Treatment Guide filling the void in patient information on this challenging disease.

Dr. Lange, a Harvard Med School graduate, is the creator and author of hundreds of DVD’s and books that have been used to educate millions of patients and physicians worldwide. His programs have been translated into a dozen languages, and are on the “recommended” lists of major patient advocacy groups.
