In June 1997, Paul Kraus was diagnosed with mesothelioma and given only a few months to live. He and his family were shocked by the diagnosis, but they were not ready to give up. They researched different therapies for this cancer and learned about chemotherapy, surgery, radiation and various complementary and alternative treatments. From this knowledge, Mr. Kraus worked with his doctors to create his own regimen to heal his mesothelioma and more than 16 years later he is alive and enjoys a good quality of life.
