''I knew the prognosis. Sooner or later, it would come back. I could slow down the inevitable; I could gain a few years. But there was nothing I could do to make this cancer disappear forever. So this was it. This was the relapse. The Big One.'' Nineteen years after his original diagnosis, having taken up a worldwide mission toward hope and alternatives for those with cancer, David Servan-Schreiber submits to an emergency MRI that confirms his greatest fear: the brain cancer has returned. Here he shares his coming to terms with the news and, with courage and candor, examines his life from the point of view of one who understands that his illness is terminal. As the author of and spokesman for an Anticancer program, a doctor who has given hope to millions of readers and patients, David frankly acknowledges the challenges of adopting a fully ''anticancer'' lifestyle in today's world and examines the choices involved in doing so. Weaving in the stories of a number of clinical cases, he reaffirms the program that enhanced and extended his life and the lives of so many others. From nutrition and exercise to rest and meditation, the protocol he followed allowed him to live to the fullest for two decades beyond medical expectation. The story he tells raises many of the most complex and personal questions about how we choose to live and how we prepare for death, striking a delicate balance between the limits of medicine and the hope that sustains us as we confront them. It is powerful, honest, and truly inspiring.

I first heard of David when I read an article in - I think- a Prevention magazine or something similar. When I realized my own mother was getting sick again a couple years later from lung cancer (stage IIIB at diagnosis but she lived almost five years with two with NED or No Evidence of Disease) I sought and purchased a DVD about Anticancer in a last ditch effort to turn things around again. I was SHOCKED to realize David died right around the time I ordered the DVD when I looked for other things on the internet. It really unnerved me as I still had hope my mom could make it a few more years. I never watched it I was just too sad and disturbed. When first diagnosed in 2007 my mom’s oncologist discouraged her from taking chemo and she was grateful. I encouraged her to juice vegetables, she ate less overall and also took coq10 and curcumin and also took Tarceva prescribed by the doctor (still do not know how he was able to prescribe as she never failed chemo or got tested for EFGR mutation). In two months her scan was clear. CLEAR! NED! One large 3 cm tumor and 11 nodules and pleural effusion were gone. Was it prayer and a combo of the other things? She had 4 great years but it did return with a vengeance during a stressful time when my dad suffered greatly from shingles on his head/in his eye. My mom was so worried he’d never be out of pain and she herself seemed to deteriorate in a heartbeat. Stress. She died approx six months after David, with much suffering along the way. I was her primary caregiver and I do not think I will ever really get over the feelings of despair failure and helplessness. I am so glad I realized David wrote one more book about his last bout with recurrence of his cancer. Reading this some 7 years later somehow makes me feel a bit better about my mom. I’m not sure why but it sort of closes a chapter. What a wonderful person! His integrative view of medicine is so needed in this world of cut, burn and poison as the mainstream treatments for cancer. More of us need to pick up the mantle and spread this belief in rounding out or maybe sometimes circumventing western medicine with nutrition and other means to treat our bodies with respect. I pray the light truly led David to paradise along with 3 of my loved ones who also died from cancer in the last 7 years -mother (lung - never smoked a day in her life), father(prostate cancer and heart failure) and significant other (stage 4 melanoma but was treated and survived 13 years before reoccurrence).

This is David Servan-Schreiber's last book and details his final coming to terms with his own death. It is a very moving and powerful tribute to a wonderful life and heroic battle with cancer. Dr. Servan-Schreiber has written several books but it was his Anti-Cancer book that really caught my attention. This book discussed his story of developing his own treatment approach after being diagnosed with brain cancer. The truly remarkable fact is that Dr. Servan-Schreiber developed his concept of healthy eating and lifestyle before those issues were well-conceived. Most all of what he developed has now been accepted as mainstream concepts of good health. The reader will find some of his specific food recommendations for specific cancers to be especially interesting. I would highly recommend reading the Anti-Cancer book before reading this Last Goodbye.

This short book was written by an accomplished French physician during the terminal stages of brain cancer. He discusses his initial bout with brain cancer some 20 years earlier, the surprise relapse in June 2010, his initial reaction to the terminal prognosis, the factors he felt contributed to the relapse, and most of all how he dealt with his pending demise.

The author was a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and cofounder of the Center for Integrative Medicine before moving back to his native France. He was the author of Anticancer, a New Way of Life, an international best seller that was translated into 40 languages. He died on July 24, 2011.

"There are two types of denial," Servan-Schreiber writes. "The first is seen in patients who are so terrified by their illness that they would rather blind themselves to it, to the extent that they might not even seek treatment. This is an extremely dangerous attitude." Servan-Schreiber opted for the second type of denial, one in which there is always hope and every possible cure, including alternative medicine, is explored, even though the prognosis is bleak. At the same time, he surrounded himself with the emotional support of his family, including a wife and children, four brothers, and 20 cousins, pointing out that the more the dying person is surrounded by loved ones, the more he remains connected to life.

Servan-Schreiber admitted to his fears. Would he tremble with fear as he did 10 years earlier or would he face it with composure. What he feared most, he said, was dying in pain. "When you stop fighting illness, you still have one challenge left," he offers, "that of dying well - saying goodbye to the people to whom you need to say goodbye, forgiving those you need to forgive, and asking forgiveness of those who need to forgive you."

Servan-Schreiber had witnessed many of his patients die and most of them seemed to have had a "good death," one in which most of them saw death as a transition "from the life we know to something else that we cannot know." He had four or five patients who had near-death experiences, reporting on a light at the end of the tunnel, meeting deceased loved ones, and returning to this life with the feeling of peace and celestial joy. Although he had been a typical rational scientist and atheist, and was aware of the skeptical arguments relative to the spiritual implications of the NDE, Servan-Schreiber said that the stories offered him some hope of seeing loved ones again. "I can say that at the uncomfortable stage at which I find myself today, these accounts are more precious than ever," he continues. "I accept their inevitable mysterious or mystical dimension, though I can't find in it any argument in favor of one religious dogma over another."

Having read two other books within the last year or two by dying doctors - one a medical doctor and the other a Ph.D. type - who couldn't bring themselves to even mention the possibility of consciousness surviving death, I found this book to be a breath of fresh air. It was a quick read, but a very satisfying one.

An extraordinary book. I am a nurse and read David’s anticancer book when a friend had a scare. I reread it this week because I want to practice prevention. This lead me to this book which I read quickly in one afternoon. It is a must read. Well written, heartfelt and authentic. A tribute to the spirit and resilience of human beings and to this dear man. It is an intimate glimpse of his life and death. I was on his facebook page today and complained that there was no recent updates. Then it hit me, I wonder if David died? Which took me to the book. I downloaded it and could not lay my reader down till I finished it. Thank-you for sharing yourself and for allowing me to know of your experience. I am better for the experience.
