Description


There's no doubt that medicine has made incredible strides in treating, and even curing, cancers. But there's a portion of the population that's missing out on these medical advances--African Americans. Dr. Fitzoy Dawkins wants to change that. He wants African Americans to fully embrace all that research and medicine has to offer, so they can fight and cure their cancers instead of succumbing to them.

There are many reasons why African Americans shy away from the medical industrial complex: Tuskegee, Henrietta Lacks, fear, denial, not wanting to be a "guinea pig." But so much has changed in medical protocols over the past fifty years that these fears are no longer valid. And yet, African American cancer patients have essentially sidelined themselves from finding a cure.

Fighting for Survival is Dr. Dawkins' his love letter to African American cancer patients, his plea for them to fully participate in all possible healing opportunities, so they can conquer cancer.
