Michael's Journey

Type: 
Book
Description: 

Michael's Journey is a book I just published. It is my diary of the past five years of my son, Michael's, recovery from brain cancer. Michael was 13 when he got suddenly ill and is now 18 and has been five years cancer free. Even though Michael walks with a walker now, that doesn't stop his drive for life. He is an inspiration to everyone he meets. This book was written to inspire other families.

You can visit www.michaelsjourney.net to find out more about the book and about Michael. There is also a link so you can view a story that was done by our local television station.
