Even if you are not a football fan you may have heard the inspirational story of Devon Still and his dedication to support his daughter Leah in her fight to beat cancer. Leah was diagnoses with late stage neuroblastoma and Devon put his career on hold to be by his daughter's side throughout her battle with cancer, sleeping in the hospital room with and inspiring others to donate to the cause of berating childhood cancer.
Leah is now cancer free and Devon wrote this book about the past few years, their fight together against what seemed like impossible odds and how through it all, he never regretted giving up football nor lost faith that his daughter could be cured.
I really like this book, being a cancer survivor myself (20 years and counting) and it shows that the belief has also a role in beating cancer, next to the talent of the physician and the advances in modern medicine. While faith will not heal cancer by itself, it can contribute to a healing process by keeping the patient more relaxed and in a better mindset. This is exactly what this book is about.
I recommend this book to anyone who is suffering from cancer or has a family member battling the disease. There is hope in the darkest corners.
