Cancer Doesn’t Recognize Man-Made Political Borders
Although our health system is far from perfect, we often forget there are BILLIONS of people in the world without basic access to the latest oncology news and knowledge. With >50 MILLION social media hits, my oncology researcher colleague Zhizhong “ZZ” Li is changing that fact in China.
I wrote previously that through his social media networks, ZZ brought my Stage IV announcement letter originally meant for family & friends to >1 Million Chinese readers and he received incredible messages of thanks for the inspiration & comfort it brought to many fellow cancer patients and their families.
ZZ’s new mass market oncology book for the Chinese market “Cancer Insights” is now on sale. He intentionally priced it to be as widely available and affordable as possible. I was proud to be asked to write a preface for it!
Chapters include these areas of information:
1: Basics of cancer
2: Cancer treatments
3: Rumors about cancer
4: Exciting new therapies
5: Pediatric cancers
6: Lung cancer, the top killer
7: Real patient stories
ZZ is both a top notch scientist as well as a wonderful writer. If you read Chinese & have 26.90 Yuan (only $4.50!) to spare, it is available on amazon.cn now! (my preface & original Stage IV announcement letter to family & friends are printed in it in both English & Chinese 🙂 )
Many of you know that oncology knowledge dissemination/democratization is a cause of mine! Unfortunately cancer doesn’t recognize man-made political borders… I believe neither should our response to it.
