Can you imagine being in senior school or college and suddenly learning you have cancer? You thought you had a lifetime ahead of you and the whole world at your feet, but suddenly you're told...maybe not. How would you cope? That's the question that the people in this book had to answer. Each individual tells his or her amazing story, in an honest, first-person voice that provides a depth you would never obtain otherwise. You'll meet Zac York, who tells of climbing Mount Whitney - on crutches - after battling brain cancer. You'll meet Jessica Myers, who had to cope with her boyfriend's callous reaction as she struggled with thyroid cancer. And you'll meet Rob Dooley, who fought brain cancer and was left with major cognitive deficits - including short-term memory loss - but never let that get in his way of obtaining a college diploma and entering graduate school. You'll also get to know and come to love seventeen others, who tell their captivating stories in their own words. It's all here - the struggles, triumphs, friendships, love, breakups, relapses. Twenty unique and fascinating stories with one common theme: childhood cancer. They'll make you smile, make you cry, and fill you with hope.
