Forget About The Latest Fashions, Celebrities Are Now Inspiring Readers With Their Cancer Stories

  

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety)

I would like to send a complimentary copy of one of the books in the Reimagining Cancer series by doctors Mark Boguski and Michele Berman, in consideration of an interview or review from you.

Appealing to our celebrity-driven society, doctors Boguski and Berman are helping to increase cancer awareness. Both Reimagining Men’s Cancers and Reimagining Women’s Cancers provide critical medical information through personal accounts of celebrities coping with cancer that are not only inspiring, they can save lives. Connecting with an admired celebrity figure over something as life-altering as cancer can trigger readers to take preventative action for their health, as well as inspire hope in a patient already diagnosed. Since someone is diagnosed with cancer every 23 seconds in America (a rate that’s expected to rise by 2 million new patients in 2016), ensuring the delivery of accurate information is vital!

Please read the press release below and let me know if I may schedule an interview with either author, or forward a review copy of one of their books. If you would like to run this story we’d be happy to send you .jpgs of the doctors and the book covers. Thank you.

Forget About The Latest Fashions, Celebrities Are Now Inspiring Readers With Their Cancer Stories

“The illnesses of famous patients receive enormous attention from the media and serve as touchstones for patients and families dealing with similar conditions… By taking a series of famous cancer cases and looking at the actual information being received by the public, Doctors Boguski and Berman are furthering the important process of ascertaining exactly what these episodes teach us.”

–– Barron H. Lerner, MD, PhD, Professor of Medicine and Public Health, New York Presbyterian, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell, Author of When Illness Goes Public: Celebrity Patients and How We Look at Medicine

“Thank you for sharing the relationship between celebrity health conditions, consumer Internet search behavior, and its potential for developing teachable moments for the advancement of public health.”

–– Nan M. Laird, PhD, Harvey V. Fineberg, Professor of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health

Boston, MA – Cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. The get-out-of-cancer-free card? Prevention through information. The recent World Cancer Report from the World Health Organization states that about half of all cancers are preventable and can be avoided if current medical knowledge is better delivered. From People magazine, with a readership of 43 million to Internet sites like JustJared.com with over 80 million monthly views, celebrity information not only sells, it has the ability to educate about important issues––including cancer.

Whether readers are currently patients or consumers wanting to be better informed, Reimagining Men’s Cancers and Reimagining Women’s Cancers exemplify that information is empowering. Reading about a famous person coping with cancer can not only be inspiring, it can save a life. In the first two books of their Reimagining Cancer series, doctors Mark Boguski and Michele Berman team with writer David Tabatsky to provide celebrity stories focusing on the most common cancers that affect men and women today.

To provide readers with critical information to help them manage, cope, and recover from illness, these books are written in an easy-to-read style and format. Each chapter begins with basic anatomy concerning each cancer, followed by an overview of how we view a particular cancer today. The chapters flow easily into an explanation of signs, symptoms, diagnoses, scientific information and guidelines, and end on comprehensive surveys for treatments and prevention. Woven throughout are stories, both medical and anecdotal, from celebrities such as Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Lance Armstrong, Angelina Jolie, Joan Lunden, Melissa Etheridge, Sandra Lee, Rita Wilson, Christina Applegate, and Suzanne Somers.

Every 23 seconds someone in America is diagnosed with cancer. Education is the key, and by using clear and concise information by means of celebrity stories, these books can teach countless readers who might otherwise not pay attention to an epidemic likely to affect them or a loved one.

About The Authors

Dr. Mark Boguski and Dr. Michele Berman are a husband and wife team of physicians who have trained and taught at some of the top medical schools and research institutions in the country, including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Washington University in St. Louis, the National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. Celebrity Diagnosis, the website they founded and launched in 2009, is now featured as an integral part of the American Association for Cancer Research website and combines celebrity health conditions with up-to-date medical information on numerous cancers. Through their website, Dr. Boguski and Dr. Berman have created numerous “teachable moments in medicine,” giving the medical facts behind the headlines. Their aim is to increase health awareness and medical knowledge for patient empowerment and professional development, and raise the likelihood of consideration for early detection and preventative behavior.

For a patient facing cancer, or for a medical student overwhelmed by data, medical information alone can be quite daunting and often misses out on the human factor that is so vital in prevention and healing. David Tabatsky, through his writing and editing, has added an essential element to the book through his interviews with patients and cancer support groups, as well as by making the book easy to read.

Getting To Know The Most Powerful Woman In The World In Hillary Rodham Clinton: On The Couch

Carlisle, PA – The widely popular On the Couch series by Alma Bond, Ph.D. has given us an opportunity to discover the lives of Marilyn Monroe and Jackie O through the eyes of renowned New York psychoanalyst, Dr. Darcy Dale. The fictionalized biographies provided a unique and revealing perspective of their lives. Now, readers are invited to learn about our former First Lady and presidential hopeful in Hillary Rodham Clinton: On the Couch. Dr. Bond captures the details found in other biographies dedicated to the life of Hillary, in a way which provides deep insight into her personality and character. If you read this book, you will feel you understand Mrs. Clinton very well, and you may even learn something about yourself.

In Hillary Clinton: On the Couch, Clinton seeks psychiatric help to deal with her husband’s infidelities. Psychoanalyst Dr. Darcy Dale encourages Hillary to talk about her past – everything from her father ruling with an iron fist, to why she was called “Sister Frigidaire” in high school, to her role as First Lady of Arkansas and subsequently, the First Lady of the United States of America.

Hillary Clinton is funny, a bit sarcastic and very intelligent. Bond provides interesting insights into what Hillary could have been thinking during pinnacle times in her life, and her state of mind from a psychoanalyst’s point of view. While this book is technically fiction, the facts themselves are all true: Only the thoughts and feelings attributed to Mrs. Clinton are fictitious, along with the story of her “analysis.” Dr. Bond’s extensive research into the life of Hillary Clinton, along with her professional knowledge of psychology and her beautiful style of writing, make this biography an enthralling and entertaining read.

“It’s easy to want to get to know the essential Hillary Clinton and want to hear her story,” says Dr. Bond. “After reading pretty much everything ever written on Hillary, and then having written a book in which my alter ego, also a psychoanalyst, carries on 69 fictionalized sessions with Hillary, I think I have a very good idea what and how Hillary thinks. To say Hillary Clinton is an amazing woman is an understatement.”

Alma H. Bond received her Ph.D. from Columbia University, and became a highly successful psychoanalyst in private practice for 37 years in New York City. She “retired” to become a full-time writer. She’s written 23 books and her popular On the Couch has received excellent reviews. Jackie O: On the Couch, the first of Bond’s On the Couch series received a Pinnacle Book Achievement Award. Bond also wrote the play, “Maria,” about the life of Maria Callas. The play was produced off-off Broadway, toured the South and will be produced in London next year.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Niagara’s Most Haunted Experience: Two of North America’s Most Haunted Places!

New York, NY – In a thoughtful, scary-good new book, renowned author, psychologist and TV show host Peter Andrew Sacco shares some excellent ghost stories, visiting two of the more profound, haunted places in Canada, two locations bordering on the USA. In The Niagara’s Most Haunted Experience, he asks, are there really such things as ghosts?

“After working on this TV series for the last 6 years, I thought I had seen and heard it all, but I would definitely have to say the last year has really opened my mind up more to the true existence of ghosts,” he says. “I have brought in one of Canada’s leading paranormal investigators featured on many ‘hauntings’ shows in both Canada and the USA and she literally made the hair on my neck and arms stand on end!” People love shows and books on ghost and hauntings because they not only like to feel scared, but also secure in knowing that there is an afterlife. “When you get to visit two of the most haunted locations in all of North America which I did the last twelve months, and see and hear things, it kind of makes you sigh in amazement, and chuckle with a sense of nervousness.” Some people need to see to believe and The Niagara’s Most Haunted Experience shares moments that could make a believer out of readers.

The Niagara’s Most Haunted Experience includes a one month shoot throughout the town of Ridgeway, Canada, one of North America’s oldest towns, and Willowbank, one of Canada’s most esteem historical mansions, sitting directly across from Lewiston, New York. The book is based on these two film shoots, and features actress/comedian Rita Carrey (sister of actor Jim Carrey), actor/producer Mitch Markowitz and esteemed Canadian newspaper reporter Richard Hutton, all invited to participate first hand with real paranormal investigators. “I think at least two out of the three celebrities were skeptics before the filming,” Sacco says. “During and after the shoots, I saw lots of jaws dropping and lips pursing together from all three, along with the entire crew, and I can’t leave out myself!” His new book examines some of the most haunted places in all North America.

Peter Sacco is also the acclaimed author of Niagara’s Most Haunted: Legends and Myths and Paranormal Niagara: Cases of the Mysterious and Macabre. Both books are collections of historically-based ghost stories and haunted places throughout the Niagara region, in both Canada and the United States. The books are based on his hit TV series Niagara’s Most Haunted which is now in its 6th year of production and seen at film festivals, comic cons and fan expos.

In addition to being an author of many books and more than 800 magazine articles, Sacco is an award-winning lecturer at universities in both the USA and Canada, specializing in relationships, criminal psychology, addictions, and mental health. He is also a frequent resident expert on several television programs and appears regularly as a guest expert on many news talk radio shows in the USA (FOX, ABC, CBS, Iheart, Coast To Coast, etc.). He is also an award-winning executive film producer and host of documentaries on relationships, psychological issues and child issues.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Hal Moore: A Soldier Once…And Always; The Story Of One Of America’s Greatest Heroes

Houston, TX — This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Ia Drang and the start of the Vietnam War. Hal Moore captured our attention when his exploits in the Ia Drang battle were recounted in his memoir We Were Soldiers Once…and Young, and commanded our respect in the memorable Mel Gibson movie, “We Were Soldiers.” Now, his life is covered in full by celebrated author Mike Guardia in Hal Moore: A Soldier Once…and Always (Casemate Publishers).

Drastically outnumbered and nearly overrun, Hal Moore led his men to a surprising victory that claimed the lives of more than 1,200 enemy soldiers. The Battle of Ia Drang pioneered the use of “air mobile infantry”—delivering troops into battle via helicopter—which became a staple of U.S. operations for the remainder of the war.

One of the greatest battlefield commanders of the 20th century, little has been known about Hal Moore’s life and career beyond the Ia Drang battle…until now.  In this book, readers will learn of his service in Occupied Japan, his life-and-death struggles in the hilltop battles of the Korean War, and how he helped rebuild the post-Vietnam Army.

Following his tour in Vietnam, he assumed command of the 7th Infantry Division, forward-stationed in South Korea, and in 1971 he took command of the Army Training Center at Fort Ord, California. In this capacity, he oversaw the US Army’s transition from a conscript-based to an all-volunteer force. He retired as a Lieutenant General in 1977.

At this writing, Hal Moore is 93 years-old and living quietly in Auburn, Alabama. He graciously allowed the author to conduct several interviews and granted full access to his collection of letters, documents, and never-before-published photographs.

Mike Guardia is a Captain in the US Army Reserve. He served six years on active duty as an Armor Officer. He holds a BA and MA in American History from the University of Houston. As an author, his previous works include Shadow Commander and American Guerrilla. He currently lives and works in Houston, TX. A portion of the book’s proceeds will go to benefit the USO.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Counting Down the Rolling Stones: Discover Their 100 Finest Songs with American Songwriter’s Jim Beviglia

Scranton, PA – For more than 50 years, the world has embraced the music and lyrics of The Rolling Stones. Their rock-n-roll masterpieces continue to be a staple of classic rock radio. Fans around the world have rocked-out with them in concert, while many of their albums rank among the very best of the genre. And their wild onstage and offstage antics are an integral part of rock and roll lore. Now, to the delight of their fans, rock writer Jim Beviglia dares to rank the band’s best songs in his new release Counting Down The Rolling Stones: Their 100 Finest Songs.

Beviglia’s Counting Down series highlights The Rolling Stones music library with the intelligence of a critic, yet the writing reveals the passion of a fan. He carefully and insightfully lays out why each song is ranked where it is, even introducing fans to songs they may not have heard before. Will every fan agree with Beviglia’s ranking? With “Honky Tonk Woman” ranked at number 46, it’s not likely – so bring on the watercooler talk. Regardless, Beviglia’s historical, behind-the-scenes account of the group tells a fascinating story of one of the most beloved bands of all time.

“Counting Down The Rolling Stones is the perfect playlist builder,” says Beviglia. “My hope is that diehard fans of The Rolling Stones learn something new about the band and enjoy fresh insight on the songs, newcomers to their music will have an excellent guide to their finest work, and all are inspired to spend an afternoon enjoying some rock-n-roll.”

Jim Beviglia is a feature writer for American Songwriter magazine, reviewing new albums and looking back at classic songwriters and songs for both the print and online editions. This is his third book in the Counting Down series. He is the author of Counting Down Bob Dylan: His 100 Finest Songs (Scarecrow Press, 2013) and Counting Down Bruce Springsteen: His 100 Finest Songs (Rowman & Littlefield, 2014).
