Liam Ryan has become one of the greatest cancer survivors of all time. Diagnosed with one of the worst cases of Head & Neck cancer ever seen he simply had no chance. His initial consultant told him he was the second worse case he had ever seen. The worst case was dead in a month. Very few hospitals in the world, he told him, could offer any hope to a case like his. He was given just weeks to live. Eventually, impressed by his fighting spirit, Professor Simon Rogers and his team in Liverpool, offered Liam a chance, without believing he would make it. To give him something to fight for, they told him he had a 5% chance. The problem with serious Head & Neck cancer is invariably the treatment required will put you in the grave before the cancer gets the chance to. If Liam was still alive after surgery he was likely to be without his sight, his speech, his hearing, his mobility, his brain function or any combination of all 5. But none of that mattered then. He just wanted to be alive. If he was alive he was winning, and cancer was losing. He underwent a life threatening 12 hour operation. It was followed by 7 weeks of radical chemo-radiotherapy but in between he got meningitis and a deep vein thrombosis. Both of these nearly killed him by themselves. By the end of 2002 he simply had no business still being alive, but somehow, he was. 10 years later his amazing survival has been outdone by his even more incredible recovery. In 2012 Liam ran his first marathon, post-cancer. Now he has written down his remarkable story for the first time. This book will take you through his life to the point of cancer and then beyond. One man and his battle with this incredible disease and how he channeled everything he had into fighting to the end. This is an inspirational story for everyone. It is a story of great hope and encouragement. Liam Ryan has become the living proof that no matter how much the odds are stacked against you, they can always be overturned.

I believe when anyone feels down on their luck, reach for this book. I actually have the book to my right in my home office. There Liam is watching me. If the day is not what it should be, I look over at Liam for inspiration.
A must read for everyone.
Every home or family should have a copy ... I keep mine opposite the smallest room in the house on a bookshelf where visitors can graze for something to read, and they invariably do and ask to take it away with them!
Be inspired and reminded about all you were made for ... and help others too, as the money for sales goes to charity.
