Author David Samuel Teaches How to Get Back to Life After Cancer

David Samuel returns to the publishing scene with the release of “How To Recover From Stage III (TNM Staging T4a, NO, MO) Bladder Cancer” (published by Lulu in February 2014). Set for a new marketing campaign, the book shares his journey of battling various health issues, inspiring others to find hope and healing.

When Samuel was originally diagnosed with stage 4+ bladder cancer and was told they were not sure if they could even fix him, the doctors hoped to at least extend his life for two years. He had to undergo several different types of surgeries, be put on life support after dying during the original six and a half hour massive surgery, and wake up two and a half days later to a blood pressure of 52/25 mmHg. Ten weeks later, Samuel coded five times — two times out for over six minutes — due to mistakes done by his oncologist not checking for blood clots. This resulted in open-heart surgery. His body had massive blood clots, including his veins, heart and lungs. His wife was then again told that they “don’t know if we can fix him,” but Samuel did survive.

He had “2 years of hell then 2 years of bad” but now enjoys a very active life after he was declared cancer-free 11 years later. After surgery, the biopsy put his cancer at stage 3 (TNM Staging T4a, NO, MO).

In “How To Recover From Stage III (TNM Staging T4a, NO, MO) Bladder Cancer,” Samuel offers a candid layman’s discussion of what bladder cancer is and how to get around all the problems arising with the diagnosis as he did. Readers will witness how he adapted his mindset, body and diet, and set goals to return to his life again.

“It is a real life experience that is a document on how I survived something that was life-altering. [The book offers] hope and a new chance of life,” Samuel says. “Live each day to its fullest, not foolish.”
