New book a DIY guide to beating cancer
After surviving cancer on his own 20 years ago, Clair Nafziger has published what hes calling a how-to manual to beating cancer. Alternative Cancer Therapy acts as a DIY guide to non-toxic cancer therapy. Nafziger worked as a counselor until recently, educating and providing resources for those interested. Ive always intended to do it, he said about publishing the 92-page guide. Over time I thought I need to have a paper to give to people, to make it easier. Then thought I might as well turn it into a little book. Nafziger is signing copies of his book from 5 to 9 p.m. Sept. 6 at Chapters Books and Coffee. The book retails for $14.
