About the Book

This is the new novel by Frank Flacy. This is a book about hope and courage in the face of death. It is a novel about one family’s battle with cancer and how it impacts their own lives and the lives of those around them. While the characters are fiction and are not intended to represent any single person, the struggle with life and death is not fiction. It is an up close and personal look at a deadly disease and what those affected by this disease did with this obstacle. Cancer and its treatment require courage. Courage for the cancer patient, but also courage for their family as well, as they must find some way to deal with their emotions and the upheaval to their lives as a result of something they usually did not cause and have little direct power or control over. Families and friends of loved ones with cancer are often the behind the scenes unsung heroes. This book looks at the whole picture of this situation. It is informative and interesting. While cancer is involved, this is not a sad book of hopelessness, but a journey of hope in seeking victory over a deadly enemy. Evil and suffering does not just happen to bad people.

To all those incredibly brave people who are fighting all forms of cancer, you are brave and you are warriors. Don’t just be a victim. Fight and make each day count. To the family, loved ones, and friends of those with cancer, you are a hero and you must endure so much, often with little or no credit. You must watch your loved one struggle with a deadly enemy, and you must help them do it. Your courage is awesome. Take it one day at a time. As much as possible enjoy each day and be thankful for it. May God bless you all.
