In 2013, my brother died after a 15-year battle with a rare, incurable cancer. He was 46 years old, and I cannot tell you how many times I uttered the phrase “fuck cancer” while he was fighting it.
I still do. On a very regular basis.
John fought hard, with grace and a seemingly unlimited supply of positivity that I am still in awe of to this day. He was in incredible pain for all those years, but rarely complained or wallowed in self pity. Accepting what he could not change (his favorite phrase was “It is what it is”), he made the best of each moment. He was grateful for every day that he lived, and stockpiled memories with his wife and kids, friends and family, touching lives in ways I never realized until after he was gone.
My brother was a total badass in how he handled living with cancer.
This book is for him.
And this book is for you. If you are fighting cancer, this is for you. If your brother, sister, mom, dad, son, daughter, relative, or friend is fighting cancer, this is for you. If you’ve lost someone to cancer like I have, this is for you. If cancer affects your life in any way, this for you.
You are worth it. You are not alone. You are a total badass. And I believe in you.
You’ve got this.
P.S. I released this book on Tuesday, June 20, my brother’s birthday. He would have been 50. I wish I was throwing him a big-ass party to celebrate. Instead, I’m throwing him a coloring book that will hopefully bring inspiration, comfort, and joy to others…just like he did. And I’m donating a portion of the proceeds to support research dedicated to finding a cure for cancer. Because fuck cancer.
