This doctor told him, "If you believe this cancer is terminal, it will be. You and I will go into partnership. I'll give you everything medicine knows - surgery, estrogen, whatever is needed. I want you to have the best time of your life: laugh, do what you want to do, begin to see it as funny."
Today, that patient remains alive. The cancer lesions have mostly cleared. And somebody from the medical school is writing up what happened to him.
There it is. If you are a patient and a partner with your doctor, you too can heal.
