Inspiration for cancer survivors — and everyone else

Almost two years to the day after getting inspiration to write a book about cancer survivors who overcame grim prognoses, my wife Tami Boehmer this week launched From Incurable to Incredible: Cancer Survivors Who Beat the Odds.

The book is available through Create Space, an Amazon company. By the end of June, you can buy it on Amazon. We’re making arrangements to get the text in book stores. And we’ll have a supply for a July 31 book launch party in Cincinnati and other events within a couple of weeks.

Tami wrote From Incurable to Incredible in part to help herself. She suffered a recurrence of her breast cancer in February 2008. The cancer had spread to lymph nodes and her liver.

After hearing less-than-encouraging news from the medical community, she sought out “miracle” survivors — positive people who were doing well with their Stage IV cancer. The book shares 27 stories of a diverse group of people from throughout the country. It includes forwards by best-selling author Bernie Siegel and Doug Ulman, CEO of Livestrong Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the book will go to Livestrong.

Many of the people in this book were located through social media. For example, we connected with Doug through Twitter. Tami maintains an excellent blog, www.miraclesurvivors.com. I’ll share a case study later.

Meanwhile, I encourage you to order this book. Share it with someone affected by cancer or another chronic health condition. Read it yourself. I promise you’ll get something out of it.
