Host Kim McMillon interviews author Fred Reiss about his book on beating cancer, and Jordan Cowman with Building Healthy Communities and Crissy Gallardo with the Merced Organizing Project about the May 14th Youth Rally in Merced, CA.

Fred Reiss shows you how to use humor and the power of your own life
and dreams and love to fight cancer, caregive, advocate for your best
care and reduce your suffering during treatment.
Fred’s been there and back . . .
Death is inevitable. But that doesn’t mean it’s necessary.
You can outrank it.
Your life is the only weapon you have to fight cancer. Fred
shows you how to multiply and divide faster than cancer.
You have cancer, but cancer doesn’t have you. You have a life,
chemo has a half life.
Today Cancer Tomorrow The World is a 224-page paperback
with pictures. It’s 14.95 and can be ordered at fredforyourhead.
com, or on Amazon.
Fred knows how financially devastating cancer and chemo can
be. That’s why he is also offering Today Cancer Tomorrow The
World as a 99-cent eBook on Amazon.
Fred wrote this book to make it easier on the next person who
has to go through chemo and cancer.
