Cancer's Gifts: A Loving Journey Towards the Final Chapter

After a 20 year career as a company president and 17 years as a coach and mentor to CEOs and business owners my life was rocked by an unexpected surprise. I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and incurable stage IV lung cancer. I was given a less than 5% chance to live to see today.
While living through brain surgery, radiation and 67 chemo sessions has not been easy, I am living a blessed life. I've been able to help hundreds of people live amazing lives regardless of the obstacles that have been placed before them. From the beginning I've blogged my journey on Caringbridge.org. And now, I've turned that blog into a book; Cancer's Gifts: A Loving Journey Towards the Final Chapter.
It is my personal goal to impact 100,000 people with my message that life can go wonderful regardless of the challenges we face. We can chose to respond to obstacles in a positive and loving way.
