When I read the title I was reminded of my High School friend who is winning is battle with Leukemia. He wrote an online journal and a book which I have read. He always made statements about how "cancer is always on your mind." So I was unsure if this story would relate to dealing with the emotional toll of Cancer or if this man's battle was cancer on the brain. I know most people would pick cancer is on the brain.
Indeed Jay did have a cancerous tumor on his brain! On top of battling all that comes with cancer Jay coaches baseball and heads up a successful company! This story is encouraging to many and is a quick read due to the authors humor! :) When I expected to read a story that would bring many tears back just reliving my personal story I actually found myself laughing instead. Beyond the humor inside the story Jay does a great job of being real and gentle but most importantly INSPIRING! I will admit that anyone who gets cancer, fights cancer, and lives to tell there story has received a gift. A gift of a new life because life is never taken advantage of after going through surgeries, chemo, radiation, and the many drugs. This is a good read for anyone!
Go here to buy the book "Cancer on the Brain."
