A book not about cancer but abour SURVIVORSHIP and the triumph of the human spirit. This book helped me while i was going through cancer. Aron Ralston is a rock climber...his forte is 14,000 foot mountains. He and I have nothing in common other than a love of nature and willingness to overcome the odds. I am not an athlete, he is. I chose this book because he is a survivor and so am I.
On a solo climb, Aron became stuck literally between a huge 800 lb. bolder and the side Blue John Canyon in Utah...for six days. With no hope of rescue he cut off his own arm to save himself.
I thought if Ralston could do that, I'd survive cancer. And I DID!
