    Flight of Hope
    A doctor's fight for his right to personalised medicine
    'This great detective story tells of a doctor unprepared to accept conventional medical wisdom when he was fit only for palliation, and tenacious enough to search for answers elsewhere. This was the nastiest form of leukaemia, one so rare and unresponsive to conventional treatments that many are experimental. Mark was 67 at time of diagnosis. His remarkable story of survival reminds us that chronology is but one measure of age, and a poor one at that. Whatever eventuates in his life, he will be measured by his courage, conviction and single-mindedness.' - Professor Mathew Vadas, AO, Executive Director Centenary Institute of Cancer Medicine and Cell Biology<br /><br />'Medico Mark Awerbuch is blessed with the writing style of an accomplished suspense novelist and this is a gripping narrative. He has T-cell lymphoblastic leukaemia. He knows too much, but none of his experience and connections helps. Instead, he finds himself on a perilous medical adventure. In this expose and tale of endurance, the marathon runner becomes the marathon patient. I could not put it down.' - Samela Harris, journalist, critic, blogger<br /><br />'Mark Awerbuch is a man of considerable accomplishment and the embodiment of resilience. He teaches us by example how to hold on to dreams, relationships, and hope when faced with the most trying of personal odysseys: a raging, prolonged battle with the angel of death that recruits a still incomplete modern medicine. I found myself cheering him on.' - Emeritus Professor Nortin M. Hadler, author of Rethinking Aging and By The Bedside of the Patient<br /><br />'You will feel compelled to read on for insights from a medical insider who defied the grim predictions.' - Keith Conlon, writer, TV presenter, radio talkback host<br /><br />'An insightful journey into what happens when a doctor becomes a patient and how a simple, chance meeting can change the course of a lifetime.' - Sophie Scott, National Medical Reporter ABC
