Mark Roby had a rare form of liver cancer for over 10 years and miraculously survived to tell his story! He is an inspiration to all who face challenges of any kind. I had the privilege and honor of hearing Mark speak at Gilda's Club recently, and was deeply moved by the story of his journey and the lessons learned along the way. His life is one filled with faith and hope, and the messages he conveys to his listeners are imbued with wisdom, optimism and conviction. He is an extraordinary speaker who offers exceptional insight into dealing with life's trials.

Patient & Author Testimonials
It was a shock when my wife was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer last year. The local surgeon immediately recommended total radical mastectomy. We wound up in Michigan visiting Mark (a 9-hour trip for us). Thank God we were led to Mark's book, Lifelines to Cancer Survival. Mark guides patients towards individualized cancer care, all based on his own remarkable experience. He shows patients life-saving strategies, including how and when to get cutting-edge molecular profiles on their tumors and chemosensitivity assays to help guide their own care. These concepts are not something we would ever have thought of on our own. Because of Mark, we found a surgeon who also had some significantly different recommendations. We are still on our journey, and are so grateful that Mark is there.

Mark is a true testament of how to fight back and survive a cancer diagnosis. We were fortunate to meet Mark, and he advised us that this book would help us in many avenues to my sister's stage VI ovarian cancer diagnosis. The information one can obtain inside this book is comparable to moving mountains. It was an amazing read for our entire family and highly recommended to ANYONE that has interest in cancer awareness. Without this book, I know my sister would not be with us today.

Mark’s story is truly inspiring, and not just his continued sur-thrival-ship, but his willingness to share how to create a more personalized approach to cancer care. He empowers the reader to research and take charge of their fate with an integrative approach. Throughout the book, he answers some of the biggest questions for people who are dealing with cancer — from finding the right doctor and asking for more personal treatments, to relaxation techniques, exercise, and eating a plant-rich diet.
