By Sue Veldkamp on May 12, 2007
Format: Paperback
At the age of 18, after three grueling years of unexplained leg and back pain, Kevin Sharp was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. Kevin, through this horrific and possibly life-ending diagnosis, was forced to literally grow up overnight and make decisions that no 18-year-old should be forced to make.

Instead of succumbing to his illness, Kevin chose to fight. A grueling and exasperating 2 years later, after months and months of chemotherapy, radiation, and even experimental treatments, Kevin's illness went into remission.

Kevin's first book, "Tragedy's Gift" has been released, telling the poignant and heart-wrenching story of Kevin's battle against an illness that almost claimed his life.

No matter if it's cancer or the most common terminal disease we simply refer to as "life," I hope you will see a little of yourself within my stories and words. Through my hopes, dreams, and trials, it's my prayer that you, too, will find the hope, faith, love, and strength to survive.

You are not alone.

Kevin Sharp

I have always loved Kevin Sharp's music and thought he was a wonderful and inspirational person who has been through alot but his book told how much he struggled with pain and so many other issues that I was not aware of. He truly was an inspiration and such a caring, giving person.

This book was short, easy to read, and written in a fairly non-technical but informative way. Kevin's story was heartbreaking at times, but you can really see the kind of man he was and how it all started.

Being a KEVIN SHARP fan for many years, I was pleased to find that he had written this book. If you want to talk about "The Measure of a Man" (one of his albums), Kevin measures at the top! Not only is he a superb singer & entertainer but a, genuinely, good person! Kevin, you will be SO missed!
