This book will make you laugh and ugly cry, maybe even snort. It's a book of life - real life! Not that "how to lose a guy in ten days" pretend life stuff. No, this book is real. You will read it feeling like you took a real life journey and be thankful you did.The title of the book was set in stone a year before the idea of a book really came to fruition. I'm an avid blogger (I think that's a thing), and as I would blog about my son's journey through cancer treatment I would always put "Thankful for the Fight" in my signature.No, I'm not thankful my son got cancer, but I am thankful he got to fight it. Growing up, I watched people around me receive calls that their child was gone. No chance to fight - just gone. That was not my experience. We were told our son Cannon had a 50/50 chance of survival. I took that and ran and I am thankful we got to fight! Many parents wish they had that luxury and the hope is that this book illustrates my awareness of that.All proceeds of this book go to Cannonball Kids' cancer, a children's cancer research foundation started in June of 2014. We are dedicated to finding cures for all childhood cancers by funding critical research needed to improve antiquated treatments and eliminate the occurrence of life-threatening side effects and secondary cancers.
