The Tumor by John Grisham

The Tumor

I read this ‘book’ this weekend. It’s really a short story / advertisement for a medical procedure that a neighbor of John Grisham’s got him to invest in. Genius to get us to download and read a long ad.

Paul is a 35-year-old father, diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. It doesn’t end well. Grisham takes Paul and us to 2025, where a treatment called Focused Ultrasound is able to extend his life expectancy.

The treatment sounds very promising, watch this Ted Talk Video.
The Tumor: A Non-Legal Thriller not so much.
