Virginia has made us aware that bestselling author John Grisham, a Virginia resident, has written “The Tumor,” a Kindle e-book showing how emerging medical technology could be used to treat various disorders.

Free John Grisham E-BookGrisham, who lives in Albemarle County, is a board member of the Charlottesville-based Focused Ultrasound Foundation. The foundation promotes the adoption of focused ultrasound, a noninvasive therapy being developed to treat more than 50 medical conditions.

The book follows a fictional 35-year-old patient named Paul, who is diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. He dies nine months after his diagnosis despite undergoing brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.

Grisham then offers an alternative narrative to the story. Paul again is 35, but he was diagnosed with the same brain tumor in 2025, nearly a decade later.

Doctors use focused beams of ultrasound energy to destroy the tumor without cutting into its skull. They also use ultrasound on the surrounding brain to activate nanoparticles that deliver high concentrations of chemotherapy while minimizing side effects. When the tumor returned a couple of times, Paul retreated with the same approach.

In a news release, Grisham said he wrote the book to raise awareness about focused ultrasound and the efforts of the foundation. The e-book is available for free on Amazon.
