Cancer, life, and me...

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

My name’s Chris. I’m married to a lovely lady and have an awesome daughter. I am a survivor of childhood cancer. In April ’09, I stopped working due to medical illness.  Short version: I was diagnosed with cancer at age 7, and have since had radiation, chemotherapy and spinal surgeries. Although I am now cancer free, I am dealing with daily health complications and what feels like an older-than-should-be body.

This book chronicles my journey, as a wife and mother of three young sons, through two bouts with breast cancer. I relate how I was able to juggle a full-time professional job with treatments and parenting.
