For decades, standard therapies have remained powerless against advanced cancer. But in the 1890s, an American surgeon showed that terminal patients could be cured by stimulating their immune systems. The treatment? A concoction of dead bacteria known as Coley’s Toxins.
This is the real-life story of Rene Chee, a biologist diagnosed with an aggressive cancer in 2008 while working at Stanford University. After conventional treatment, she realizes her survival odds are dim. Turning to alternative medicine, she and her husband discover Coley’s Toxins. Embarking on an arduous journey, they overcome obstacles and danger to obtain Coley’s Toxins and other immunotherapies. They have an ally: a world-renowned immunologist who teaches them how to unleash Rene’s immune system against the cancer.
Through the lens of their story, the reader will be empowered with a broad understanding of immunotherapy today. Readers will also learn how to leverage the immune system in powerful and practical ways against cancer using drugs, diet and determination. Discussion questions are included at the end of the book for reading groups or book clubs.

- How cutting-edge immunotherapies work
- How tumors can hide from the immune system
- How to maximize immunotherapy by combining treatments
- How low-carb diets and high omega-3 diets can weaken tumors
