Grisham Authors The Tumor to Advance Focused Ultrasound
Friday, December 4, 2015
Bestselling author, John Grisham, has been a board member and steadfast supporter of Focused Ultrasound Foundation for years. He has now written a book about focused ultrasound called The Tumor – a fictional account portraying the potential impact of FUS to all of our futures. The book hopes to ignite widespread interest and raise funds to support the Foundation’s work.
As John writes, “I have found no other cause, issue, non-profit or charity that can potentially save so many lives. One day in the not-too-distant future, you or someone you love will be diagnosed with a tumor. Let’s hope focused ultrasound is available.”
John’s story is about a young father named Paul who is diagnosed with a lethal brain tumor. Given current medical options, Paul’s future is bleak. However, fast forward ten years when focused ultrasound is used to treat Paul, extending his life expectancy. In addition to this story, The Tumor includes a summary of the state of the technology and the mission of the Foundation to accelerate progress.
The Tumor will be promoted to the general public. Visit the Foundation website to download a copy as well as obtain a free hard copy.
