Kennedy & Novak's cancer can be cured: an open letter
Dear Senator Kennedy and Robert Novak,
As Mr. Liberal and Mr. Conservative, you are joined in a common cause: victory over incurable brain cancers.
It can be done.
The Doctor Who Cures Cancer tells five such stories of insurmountable victories, including the 46-year victory of Robert Fishbein, M.D., a 29-year-old physician with a wife and two small children.
Bob graduated from Harvard and Yale. He was also a winner on the Ted Mack Amateur Hour in his only appearance on the program. (Ted Mack was the "Star Search" of the 1950's. Bob's parents wouldn't allow him to return to the show despite an invitation to come back.)
But his Ivy League training didn't exempt Dr. Bob from falling victim to a virulent brain tumor. Bob's doctors estimated he would only live maybe two more months.
Bob furiously started a letter writing campaign to all the medical geniuses he knew, including Professor George Wald, who was honored with the Nobel Prize in Medicine ten months later.
But no one had the key to victory for Bob, not even Prof. Wald.
Meanwhile, Bob took a chance and saw a doctor who had been pilloried by the Journal of the American Medical Association and by the American Cancer Society.
That was in 1962. Bob is cancer free today, 46 years later.
The work of Dr. Emanuel Revici is now being carried out by Dr. Radu Kramer, his grand nephew in Paramus, NJ. I'd suggest that both of you give him a call. His office phone number is (201) 967-0880.
P.S. Anyone else may call IF you have cancer. If you don't, don't call...Dr. Kramer and his staff are too busy taking care of patients.
The best to you.
Together we can cure cancer - one person at a time!
