At Face Value: My Struggle With A Disfiguring Cancer

Type: 
Book
Description: 

I was a junior at the University of California at Berkeley. At the age of twenty, my life had been smooth sailing, seldom interrupted with adversity or difficulty. I was confident and not concerned much with my appearance. But out of nowhere, a lump had formed behind my right nostril. I had cancer. I fought it and survived. But after multiple surgeries and radiation treatment, I would discover that I hadn't even begun to deal with what would become my greatest struggle for years to come - the disfigurement that resulted from it.At Face Value explores the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual challenges that a disfiguring cancer brought to my life. It's a story about tragedy, obstacles, and ultimately, about triumph.At Face Value is a personal story that tells about the life I celebrated, but took for granted; the life I abhorred and tried to change; and the life that I treasured because it finally had meaning.
