These were the questions that filled my mind as the doctor finished telling me that my less than 3-week-old son was diagnosed with Stage 4 MS Neuroblastoma Cancer…
Eventually, the tears stopped, the pain subsided, and fear no longer dominated my every thought. I would no longer ask “Why Me?” but rather, “Why Not Me?”. I PREVAILED. Life is 10 percent of what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it. So why not me is how I decided to respond.
“Just Prevail” is not only a chronicle of my son’s miraculous fight with cancer but also a tale that is meant to inspire everyone. No matter how the odds are stacked against you, no matter what it is you’re going through… YOU TOO CAN PREVAIL!
All you have to do is shift your thinking and ask yourself: why not me?
