The Layman’s Guide to Surviving Cancer with Howard Bressler

Mel sits down with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia cancer survivor Howard Bressler. Howard has been cancer free for 14 years. Realizing there was a need for a book that explains cancer simple easy to understand terms, Howard wrote the book The Layman's Guide To Surviving Cancer: From Diagnosis Through Treatment And Beyond. Howard utilized his skills as a toxic tort lawyer to write this book that everyone can understand. The book is a helpful resource when you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, including a great section on nutrition.

Howard Bressler has been married to his wife, Ceci, for twenty-two years. They have two daughters and live on Long Island, New York. Howard has been practicing law in New York City for more than twenty years, and has extensive experience in toxic tort and chemical exposure cases. Part of that work has involved investigating the science behind diseases, including cancer, and working with expert scientific witnesses in order to make complicated issues regarding disease causation and progression understandable to lay-people.

In August 2000, Howard was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia. He underwent high-dose chemotherapy and participated in a clinical trial using arsenic trioxide to treat his cancer. In The Layman's Guide To Surviving Cancer, he puts his analytical skills, perspectives and personal and professional experience to work in crafting a roadmap for others to follow as they navigate the road to cancer survivorship.
