Beyond Words is a couple's true, inspirational story of faith, hope, and love in the face of terminal brain cancer.

Absolutely nothing can prepare you to hear a doctor utter the unthinkable words, "You have brain cancer." Becky and Steve Schenck know this all too well. They will never forget the summer day in 2006 that abruptly changed the course of their lives. Becky, a healthy, active, vibrant woman in her fifties, was living life to the fullest. Her glioblastoma diagnosis struck without warning.

The story that unfolded for the Schencks following Becky's diagnosis is nothing short of remarkable.

The God in whom they believed and trusted aligned their circumstances and provided them with the people and resources that Becky needed to defy all odds. She was blessed with a decade of life beyond her prognosis.

Steve left his executive banking career to become Becky's sole, full-time caregiver. The caregiving experience brought Steve joy and personal growth, in the midst of often challenging and unpredictable circumstances. Beyond Words offers inspiration and helpful insights to those who are caring for a patient with a terminal illness.

The revolutionary, New York Times bestselling guide to the powerful lifestyle changes that fight and prevent cancer—an integrative approach based on the latest scientific research
 
“A common-sense blueprint for healthy living.” —Chicago Tribune
 
“Resonating with cancer support communities and recommended nationwide.” —Los Angeles Times
 
“Life affirming . . . filled with practical advice.” —The Seattle Times
 
David Servan-Schreiber was a rising neuroscientist with his own brain imaging laboratory when, in the middle of an equipment test, he discovered a tumor the size of a walnut in his own brain. Forced to confront what medicine knows about cancer, and all that we still do not know, Servan-Schreiber marshaled his will to live and set out to understand the complex inner workings of the body’s natural cancer-fighting capabilities. He soon found himself on a decades-long journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration and, finally, a new view of health.
 
Anticancer is at once the moving story of one doctor’s inner and outer search for wellness and a radical exposition of the roles that lifestyle, environment, and trauma play in our health. Drawing on the latest research in integrative medicine that blends conventional and alternative approaches, Servan-Schreiber concisely explains what makes cancer cells thrive, what inhibits them, and how we can empower ourselves to prevent their growth. His advice details how to develop a science-based anticancer diet (and the small changes that can make a big difference); how to reap the benefits of exercise, yoga, and meditation; which toxic, unsafe products to replace in your home; and how to stave off the effects of helplessness and unhealed wounds to regain balance.
 
Anticancer’s synthesis of science and personal experience marks a transformation in the way we understand and confront cancer. A long-running bestseller that has changed the lives of millions around the world, Anticancer remains a pioneering and peerless resource, an inspirational and revolutionary guide to “a new way of life.”
