Rhio O’Conner, a 7-year survivor of mesothelioma cancer, has written a book entitled “They Said Months, I Chose Years: A Mesothelioma Survivor’s Story.” The book is published by Cancer Monthly.
O’Conner was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma in 2001, and was given less than one year to live. Discouraged by his doctor’s advice to take a final vacation with his wife and then prepare to live his last months at home with Hospice care, O’Conner instead came up with his own aggressive treatment plan, which included taking over 100 supplements each day and meditating.
O’Conners unique message is that there are “other” ways to overcome cancer than just relying on the traditional treatment methods, such as chemotherapy or surgery.
“They Said Months, I Chose Years: A Mesothelioma Survivor’s
Story” can be purchased on Amazon.com.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer in which malignant (cancerous) cells are found in the mesothelium, a protective sac that covers most of the body’s internal organs. Most people who develop mesothelioma have worked on jobs where they inhaled asbestos particles.
