In late 2010 Andrew 'Cad' Cadigan quit his job, sold his home and set out to walk around Australia. He was doing it in honour of a mate, Chris Simpson, who had recently succumbed to a rare pre-leukaemia condition. Over the next eighteen months Cad walked over 15,000 kilometres, pushing a three-wheeler pram that held all his provisions. Along the way he met hundreds of people from all walks of life, making new friendships and collecting donations for the Leukaemia Foundation. He battled extreme weather, injury, loneliness and even depression, but refused to surrender. Four days after triumphantly crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge to complete his trek, Cad left for a holiday in Thailand, where he planned to turn his journals into a book. Tragically, within a month he suffered horrific injuries in a motorcycle accident, dying twelve weeks later. Cad's father, Neil, vowed to his son that he would finish his book. With Every Step, which is by turns irreverent, entertaining, tragic and inspirational, represents the completion of Andrew Cadigan's mission. It is an emotional story that only a father could tell. $1 from every copy of With Every Step sold will be donated to the Leukaemia Foundation.
