Grisham spoke with correspondent Chip Reid about why he became involved. “The Tumor is the only book I’ve written that has a potential of advancing a technology that will have a profound impact on the lives of millions of people,” said Grisham.

Reid also spoke with Dr. Neal Kassell, chairman of the Foundation, who explained the important role that Grisham is playing in educating the public. “One of the key impediments to the development and adoption of the technology is lack of awareness. It turns out that we have a celebrity on our board who has got a brand, can tell a story and has a following,” said Dr. Kassell.

The Tumor has been very well received by the public. In just a few months, more than 350,000 books have been distributed. One reader posted the following review on Amazon – “All of Grisham's books are thrilling, but this one in particular is gripping, but for other reasons. The science is fascinating and seems like it's ahead of its time, but it's not! It's exciting to think that things like this are on the horizon. For those who are cursed with such an illness, this brings hope and promise.”




The Tumor e-book is available for free on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Google Play, and hard copies can be ordered at thetumor.org.
