They're Mine and I’m Keeping Them is a story of innovation, courage, and triumph. Laura Ross-Paul wanted to keep her breast after being diagnosed with breast cancer which could only be treated by a mastectomy. This is the story of how she and her husband bucked the system, found Dr. Peter Littrup, a doctor with advanced skill in the field of tumor freezing, who performed cryo-ablation, and ultimately saved her breast. The success of their collaboration makes breast conservation a realistic outcome of breast cancer treatment.

About the Book

But being a patient pioneer isn’t always easy and this story, taken directly from Laura’s journals in real time, doesn’t hold back. It takes the reader on a journey of visceral emotions and actions, from visits to a faith healer who didn’t give a physical cure, to finding Dr. Peter Littrup through an inspiring journey of trust in a higher guidance.

An unexpected, but welcome result, of the cryo-ablation treatment, was the “immune effect.” The body’s immune system is able to recognize the protein structure of the cancer cells when it cleans out the dead tissue and in about half the cases of cryo-ablation, naturally creates an immunity to the cancer. The book also relates the success at FUDA Hospital in Guangzhou, China in treating a variety of Stage 4 cancers by combining cryo-ablation and advanced immune system therapies, which increase the frequency of the occurrence of the natural immune effect to approximately eighty percent or higher of the cases.

About the Author
Alex Paul

Alex Paul lives in Portland, Oregon in the winter and on the Oregon coast in the summer with his wife Laura Ross-Paul. Their summer home is a small log cabin with a yurt for Laura’s art studio. Trained as an Industrial Engineer at Oregon State University, he pursued a variety of careers before settling into real estate development. Alex has a great love of the outdoors, which has translated into a rich base of experience to draw on in writing the Arken Freeth novels. He began hunting when he was 20 in 1968. He hunts for deer and elk in Oregon and New Mexico. Hunting trips in years past have included elk hunts in Colorado, Idaho, Utah, and Washington as well as antelope hunts in Wyoming. Alex’s fishing career began when his family moved into a house on the North Santiam River when he was twelve years old. He found a fishing pole left in the garage and decided to learn how to fish, primarily by checking out books about fishing for trout from the school library. While his father was not interested in fishing, his mother faithfully accompanied him on trips to a special fishing hole on the river behind an abandoned wooden dam until she was confident he would not fall in and drown. Then he fished the river accompanied only by his two dogs. That early interest in trout fishing transformed into a passion for salmon fishing, and now Alex keeps a deep sea fishing boat, in Astoria, Oregon. Friends and children join him in the summer crossing the Columbia River Bar to fish the Pacific Ocean. When he is not hunting or fishing, Alex surfs the Oregon Coast, skis the Oregon Cascades, and hikes trails almost daily. He still has two dogs who are his loyal companions on most of his outdoor adventures. Additional activities such as archery, fencing, Tae Kwon Do, and horseback riding have also informed his writing.
