'Life Begins at 65: Words of a Cancer Survivor': New Book Offers Empowering Strategies for Rising Above Sickness and Setbacks
Date:1/9/2009

WHITBY, Ontario, Jan. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Two words strike fear in the hearts of men and those who love them: prostate cancer. Matthew E. McLaren lived through the shock of that diagnosis, suffered the grief and anger that followed and then turned his medical condition into the opportunity of a lifetime. In his new book, "Life Begins at 65: Words of a Cancer Survivor" (published by AuthorHouse -- http://www.authorhouse.com), he provides a valuable roadmap for those facing this disease.

"Life Begins at 65" is a veritable encyclopedia of etiology, anatomy, physiology, and biochemistry, as well as various treatments of prostate cancer. McLaren weaves his personal experience with scientific observations to provide an accessible guide to overcoming this disease, or more importantly, preventing it in the first place.

Spirituality and the power of the mind-body relationship create a solid platform from which to build a healthy lifestyle. McLaren details his experience with prostate cancer in language that is easy to understand. At the same time, his knowledge of treatments and physiology make this a useful book for medical professionals seeking unique perspectives on patient care.

"Life Begins at 65" begins with McLaren's personal account of living with prostate cancer. From there, he expands into an overview of the disease, conventional and alternative treatments, and preventive maintenance through alignment of the mind and body. Diagrams and photographs enhance readers' understanding of prostate cancer, while McLaren's down-to-earth style provides warmth and encouragement in what may be a time of great anxiety.

"Characteristically, people with cancer don't feel entitled to express negative feelings, including anger," writes David W. Roland in the introduction. "They keep these negative feelings bottled up, eating away inside, so to speak. Matthew points a way out of all this. Follow his lead. Don't take anything at face value. Question everything. Examine all your options. Choose the ones that feel best to you. Do this and you will be self-empowered. Hopelessness and helplessness will then be in your past, as will your cancer."

About the Author: Matthew E. McLaren was born in Jamaica and immigrated to Canada with his family in 1976. In 1997, he underwent surgery for prostate cancer, and the experience changed his life in a positive way. Researching prostate cancer influenced his decision to pursue a career in nutrition science. In 2007, at the age of 67, McLaren completed his doctoral degree through Westbrook University in West Virginia. He currently lives with his wife in Whitby, Ontario, where he dedicates himself to advocating healthy lifestyles. "Life Begins at 65" is his first book, and he plans to write more on the subject of health and nutrition. A percentage of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to cancer research and Christian education through the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
