Eleven days before their first wedding anniversary, Juliette Guidara's husband, Frank, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given a 5.4% chance of survival. The couple looked to their doctors for all the answers; however, they soon realized that it's impossible for doctors to know everything, because they are educated to diagnose and prescribe drugs within the parameters of their training. They rarely search for the root cause of problems or choose to boost their patients' immune system with nutrition and/or supplements. "Our hearts go out to oncologists," says the author. "Their days are filled with devastating news and death. We pray that one of these days, the pharmaceutical companies, in conjunction with the FDA, will allow them to take advantage of the safe and helpful complementary modalities that are out there." The main reason Juliette wrote 5.4%: Beating the Odds of Pancreatic Cancer, was to enlighten patients and those who care for them about healing options that go beyond the traditional treatment of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. She believes there is no reason to restrict treatment to either Western or Eastern - they can work together. Following is a life-changing journey supported by tremendous love, hope, commitment, determination and sheer strength. Her book shares a profound love story that relates to how a death sentence was turned around. Written from the heart and soul, this honest account of an extremely challenging time will resonate with many readers. It's all about survival and being open to new and different ideas.
