Native American Sports Heroes Series

The Native American Sports Heroes Series was begun in 2008 to focus attention  on people and teams of interest to particular readers. Readers do not need to read  all books in the series as each book is to stand by itself. Readers will select those volumes of interest to themselves. Background information is provided in each volume in the series to make the book understandable by readers who are new to the topic.  <more>

Health-Related Titles

Veterans, particularly Vietnam vets, have a higher than average incidence of prostate cancer than the general population. The Veterans Administration designated prostate cancer as an Agent Orange disease and provides disabilities for those who qualify. Also, a study of Viet Nam vets who underwent surgery for prostate cancer at a VA hospital had a much higher rate of recurrence than others who underwent radical surgery. The VA has programs to assist veterans with prostate cancer both financially and with medical care, depending on the vet's individual circumstances. This book provides the reader with basic information about the disease, types of treatment for the disease, and possible assistance that may be available from the VA.  The journey from diagnosis to treatment to getting assistance from the VA is a long one that requires much fortitude. This book aims to serve as a guide along that road.

Tuxedo Press launches its line of health-related books with a timely title. Men are diagnosed with prostate cancer at about the same rate women are diagnosed with breast cancer and, unfortunately, die of the disease at similar rates as well. WWII, Korean and Vietnam War veterans are now in the age range in which prostate cancer is most commonly found in men. This title is of interest to men who may have prostate cancer and the women who love them.
