Offit Kurman Attorney, Rachel Mech, interviews national best-selling author, Dr. David Fajgenbaum about Chasing My Cure

Offit Kurman Attorney, Rachel Mech, interviews national best-selling author, Dr. David Fajgenbaum about Chasing My Cure.

David Fajgenbaum, MD, MBA, MSc, is a groundbreaking physician-scientist, disease hunter, speaker, and author of the national bestselling memoir, Chasing My Cure: A Doctor’s Race to Turn Hope Into Action.

Best known as the ‘doctor who cured himself’ (Doctor Cure Thyself, NY Times), Fajgenbaum went from being a beast-like college Quarterback to receiving his last rites while in medical school and nearly dying four more times battling Castleman disease. To try to save his own life, he spearheaded an innovative approach to research through the Castleman Disease Collaborative Network (CDCN) and discovered a treatment that is saving his life and others.

Now, he is spreading this approach to other diseases (His method could save millions, CNN) such as COVID19 and sharing lessons he learned about life, hope, and resilience from nearly dying through Chasing My Cure, which has been translated into five languages and named one of the “Best Non-Fiction Books” by Next Big Ideas Club.

Dr. Fajgenbaum and Offit Kurman attorney, Rachel Mech, celebrate the recent paperback launch of his book Chasing My Cure: A Doctor’s Race To Turn Hope Into Action, which is a hardcover national bestseller.  If you haven’t read it as of yet and want to be inspired, be sure to pick up a copy from your favorite bookstore or on Amazon.
