Allen R. Dyer Publishes “One More Mountain to Climb” About Battle With Cancer
WASHINGTON (June 20, 2013)—Allen R. Dyer, M.D., Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences published One More Mountain to Climb: What My Illness Taught Me About Health on June 2. The book, which is published by Lambert Academic Publishing, chronicles Dyer’s battle with multiple myeloma, a virulent blood cancer, for which he received a bone marrow transplant in 1998.
“The sudden transition from physician to patient challenged everything I previously thought I understood about illness,” said Dyer. “It opened a whole new understanding, which has led to taking on new challenges in dealing with trauma and resilience, global disaster response, global health and mental health, and cancer survivorship.”
Proceeds from the sale of the book (available at Amazon.com and Morebooks.de) will be donated to The Willowcliff Foundation, which was founded in 2003 to support world citizenship and global stewardship.
