Edit911 is proud and humbled to report that Denise “attributes the success of Got Cancer? Now What? to the excellent editing produced by the Edit911 team. The big challenge was finding an editor who could not only edit the book, but who had medical terminology and experience with scientific research and technical jargon. Blending these together and keeping the integrity of the book and research took dedication and a special talent. Good editing involves keeping the author’s intent in balance with the overall objective of the book. Edit911 succeeded with this.”
Denise attended UC Irvine where she received her Certificate in Human Resource Management and held the position of Vice President of Human Resources with a major firm in Orange County, California. While attending Orange Coast College toward a BA in Communications she received a diagnosis of both breast cancer and chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
She transitioned into working in the medical field for a few years to be closer to physicians and to learn more about therapies. She was determined to find a gentle, more nontoxic and immune supporting way to fight her cancer. As a result she was cured of her breast cancer.
After six years of fighting the CLL, reading medical journals, research studies, articles, books and consulting with researchers and physicians worldwide she ultimately found a cure as a stage-four patient for the second cancer, CLL.
During these years she found her passion was writing and helping other cancer patients by identifying and fulfilling their needs—whether it was a hotel room for the night or a nutritional drink to regain some strength. One day she decided to extend her meaningful work into writing a book to help others.
In this easy-to-read guide, Denise Messenger describes precisely what to do after the devastation of a cancer diagnosis by covering both the scientific and personal aspects of cancer. She illustrates how being positive and prepared can have an incredibly beneficial effect on cancer outcomes. Whether you have been diagnosed with cancer or know someone who has, this book will help you decide how to select doctors and treatments, as well as how to take care of your body with both traditional and alternative therapies.
