That is a question many ponder for a hopeful answer. Although it has been an ongoing battle throughout centuries, research is tirelessly pressing forward to eradicate cancer altogether with a cure on the verge of being discovered. However, in the meantime, families and friends seek to continually provide some form of encouragement to those who have fallen victim to various forms of cancer. Nothing can soothe the soul and uplift a person’s spirit as well as affirmative words of support.
To assist in comforting victims and loved ones affected by cancer, Dr. Watson seeks to provide a daily dose of inspiration through his gift of composing poetry in his latest book, Defeating Cancer One Poem a Day. From talking with many victims and loved ones affected by cancer over many years, he realized in most cases a simple word of encouragement speaks volumes in times of need. The need oftentimes occurs during moments of being alone whether by choice or happenstance. To address such a need when it arises, Dr. Watson suggests starting each morning by reading an encouraging poem to positively condition the mind, soul, and spirit in preparation for whatever the day brings.
Not only is Defeating Cancer One Poem a Day written to inspire, it will also monetarily support efforts against cancer with 50% of the proceeds from each copy sold being donated to The American Cancer Society and various other cancer research and awareness organizations. Let’s join the fight together for a better tomorrow by ultimately eradicating all forms of cancer worldwide and defeating cancer with one poem a day.
