For decades Stephen Iacoboni, MD, carried John Donne’s words with him, “No man is an island …every man’s death diminishes me…therefore, do not send to know…for whom the bell tolls…it tolls for me.” Every patient’s death begged questions.


Cancer moves more slowly today, thanks to modern science. But science provides scant solace when it fails, slowly, to save our physical forms…and religious faith too often proves fragile during a long mortal watch.


Stephen J. Icaboni, MD, served his fellowship in medical oncology at the prestigious MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston where he received the outstanding researcher award and was honored to present his research findings at the American Society of Clinical Oncology.


In 1989 Dr. Icaboni co-founded St. Mary’s Regional Cancer Center in Walla Walla Washington, where he lived and practiced for 16 years. He accepted the position of Medical Director at the Kootenai Cancer Center in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho in 2001, and in 2010 returned to Washington to co-direct the Kennewick General Hospital Hematology-Oncology program.


“The Undying Soul - A Cancer Doctor’s Discovery” is a powerful journey enabling doctor and patient to walk the hard road from the failure of science to the triumph of spirit. See also: www.theundyingsoul.com
