“90 Days to Live” receives national recognition through the INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD®
Oklahoma City, OK – May 9, 2019—The INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD recognized 90 Days to Live: Beating Cancer When Modern Medicine Offers No Hope, in the category of Alternative Medicine as a distinguished favorite.
The competition is judged by experts from different aspects of the book industry, including publishers, writers, editors, book cover designers and professional copywriters. Selected award Winners and Distinguished Favorites are based on overall excellence.
When Oklahoma City-area businessman Rodney Stamps heard, “You have 90 days to live” from several doctors, he and his wife—and business partner— were totally blindsided. But their shock and devastation soon turned to grim resolve. As Rodney recalls, “We were a young and growing family, and with a business that was finally taking off. Given how much I had to live for, we decided that dying wasn’t an option.”
The Stamps chronicle their story in the new release, “90 Days to Live: Beating Cancer When Modern Medicine Offers No Hope.” The book details the good the bad and the ugly of Rodney’s entire journey to total remission. Refusing to follow his MD’s pleas to start chemotherapy— which only promised to briefly extend his life—the Stamps started exploring countless cancer treatments. While most were ineffective or downright “scammy,” their search also led them to a treatment with, reportedly, a 97% success rate (including with “death-sentence”-type cancers like pancreatic).
From time to time, as wife Paige recalls, “We’d ask ourselves, Were we doing the right thing? Are we crazy to ignore our doctors? But, then we would remind ourselves that modern medicine wasn’t offering any good options, and we’d get back on track.”
Given the outcome, Rodney and Paige clearly feel blessed by life and see their books as a way to give back. Says Rodney: “So many struggling with cancer are being told there’s no hope. And I’m living proof—literally—that there are other avenues to explore beyond modern medicine. And if we can make that process a little easier for others, we want to do it.”
For the 2019 competition, the INDEPENDENT PRESS AWARD had entries from across the globe. Worldwide participation included books submitted from cities such as London to Madrid; Dallas to Philadelphia; Calgary to Melbourne, Chicago to San Francisco, and many different countries such as Australia, Africa, Canada, Egypt, India, Japan and Scotland as well as others.
