Fascinating book by a unique and interesting person who has loved his life and has managed to do what he loves through force of will and an engaging personality. Anthoney Herrera is an actor, playwright, television producer, and poet, currently appearing on "As the World Turns". This book is an account of his fight with mantel cell lymphoma. It is also an account of his life with and without cancer. Well written with not a single excess word. Straight and to the point. This man took responsiblity for his medical care. He found the best doctors and the best hospital. Personal and very readable. Should be read for an account of the trials of a strong, funny, and intelligent human being who decided to continue living and living large.

The Cancer War is a must read for anyone going through cancer treatment (whether as the patient, family member or friend). Anthony details his struggle with lymphoma, including his pioneering second stem cell transplant, with style, humor and grace. This book gets beneath the soap opera star veneer and into the heart and soul of a brave warrior. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and most of all, you'll be touched and changed by his words.

Having met Anthony when I performed one of his imaging tests, I was interested to see if his good humor and strength of will translated into his book. I should not have worried. From the first chapter, it is apparent and I found myself pulling for him all over again. We are transported into his world of pain, loyalty of friendship, and frustration with a medical system that sometimes forgets that the patient is part of the process. I continually recommend Anthony's book to my patients, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to read the story of a true survivor.

I read The Cancer War online. After reading this fantastic, well written book I decided that I wanted to own a printed copy so I ordered it here on Amazon.com. I consider this book an investment. I've read a lot of books, but this one was well worth the time it took to read it. It's not only entertaining but filled with the most valuable information you could possibly imagine. I truly believe that every household should have a copy because one never knows but what happened to Anthony Herrera could also happen to them. He's passing on what he learned during his ordeal to anyone who will take the time to read his book. Thank you Anthony for writing The Cancer War. The Cancer War, deserves more than 5 stars, however, that's all that's allowed on this website.
