A week before we left for the Thanksgiving vacation, my uncle, my Mom's eldest brother passed away. It was a painful struggle for him. He just had surgery in the prostate before the death. It was believed he had a prostate cancer. My aunt, who took care of him, found him lying down on the bathroom floor. She found out that he died from a stroke. Cancer patients mostly die from complications. There's a type of cancer which affects the protective sac surrounding one's internal organs. It is called Mesothelioma.
Mesothelioma is rare, but still it is cancer that is deadly. Asbestos is the culprit for such disease. Gladly, there has been research that you can actually survive from it. This is based from Paul Kraus's experience, a cancer survivor himself. He has a popular book called, "Surviving Mesothelioma", that is considered valuable by every cancer patient.
