Tips for beating a life-threatening cancer diagnosis

White House
Vice President Joe Biden addresses the Cancer Moonshot Summit this past summer. Watch his full address below.

"Your child has terminal cancer..." is a devastating statement for a parent to hear.  But, one Central Coast man says there are critical, life-saving actions that can and should be taken following that moment.

Frank Kalman, founder of the Kids' Cancer Research Foundation and author of the free guide Steps to Hope, changed his life's focus after a doctor told him a similar statement many years ago about his daughter.

Not only did he succeed in helping his daughter fight her terminal diagnosis, but he also created a structure for other parents and patients to follow, based on his experiences.

Kalman also attended this year's Cancer Moonshot Summit, where he got an opportunity to mix with the movers and shakers in the cancer treatment community.
