LOS ANGELES – American Book Fest recognizes “90 Days to Live: Beating Cancer When Modern Medicine Offers No Hope” as Best Cancer Book of 2019!
Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of American Book Fest said this year’s contest yielded over 2,000 entries from mainstream and independent publishers, which were then narrowed down to over 400 winners and finalists. Keen says of the awards, now in their seventeenth year, “The 2019 results represent a phenomenal mix of books from a wide array of publishers throughout the United States. With a full publicity and marketing campaign promoting the results of the Best Book Awards, this year’s winners and finalists will gain additional media coverage for the upcoming holiday retail season.”
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.”
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).
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 hilarious of Rodney’s entire journey to total remission.
Winners and finalists traversed the publishing landscape: HarperCollins, Penguin/Random House, Simon and Schuster, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, TarcherPerigee, New World Library, Hay House, Rowman & Littlefield and hundreds of Independent Houses contribute to this year’s outstanding competition!
Keen adds, “Our success begins with the enthusiastic participation of authors and publishers and continues with our distinguished panel of industry judges who bring to the table their extensive editorial, PR, marketing, and design expertise.”
