John Grisham says THE TUMOR is the most important book he has ever written. In this short book, he provides readers with a fictional account of how a real, new medical technology could revolutionize the future of medicine by curing with sound.
THE TUMOR follows the present day experience of the fictional patient Paul, an otherwise healthy 35-year-old father who is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Grisham takes readers through a detailed account of Paulâ€™s treatment and his familyâ€™s experience that doesnâ€™t end as we would hope. Grisham then explores an alternate future, where Paul is diagnosed with the same brain tumor at the same age, but in the year 2025, when a treatment called focused ultrasound is able to extend his life expectancy.
Focused ultrasound has the potential to treat not just brain tumors, but many other disorders, including Parkinsonâ€™s, Alzheimerâ€™s, hypertension, and prostate, breast and pancreatic cancer.
For more information, you can visit The Focused Ultrasound Foundationâ€™s website. Here you will find a video of Grisham on the TEDx stage with the Foundationâ€™s chairman and a Parkinsonâ€™s patient who brings the audience to its feet sharing her incredible story of a focused ultrasound â€œmiracle.â€
Readers will get a taste of the narrative they expect from Grisham, but this short book will also educate and inspire people to be hopeful about the future of medical innovation.
