R. A. BLOCH CANCER FOUNDATION-Their philosophy is that KNOWLEDGE HEALS, IGNORANCE DESTROYS. In 1978, Richard Bloch, co-founder and honorary chairman of the board of H&R Block, Inc. was diagnosed with “terminal” lung cancer. With the help of his wife, Annette, doctors who said he could beat the cancer, and his own determination, Bloch waged a bitter two-year war on the insidious disease. So dramatic was his fight and recovery that Bloch and his wife are now devoting their lives to helping others stricken with cancer. Link to an insightful quote about hope from Richard A. Bloch.
