Courageous Story of Young Couple, Both Facing Cancer -- and Both "Beat the Odds!"
Joyce O'Brien Shares Her Story & Message of Inspiration -- Just in Time for "National Breast Cancer Awareness Month"
"Choose to Live" demonstrates what its title says. It lives the message.
It can show you how to turn a curse into a blessing and can, through life's difficulties -- or what I call the labor pains of life -- help you be reborn to the life you desire. It restores your ability to enjoy the emotional and physical benefits that come with the new life. Then your problem becomes a gift and wake-up call, because it provides you with a new beginning."
- Bernie Siegel, M.D.
Bestselling author of "Love, Medicine & Miracles"
Joyce and Kevin O'Brien were living life; working and playing just like other 30-year-olds. She was at the top of her career, and just finished her 14th year on Wall Street, running a $2 billion business. Then their world came tumbling down.
Kevin had a brain hemorrhage, three strokes and was paralyzed at age 31.
Joyce was then diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33. She had a mastectomy and underwent chemotherapy. As a result of the cancer, she lost her job, life insurance, disability insurance and health insurance.
A year later, Kevin was diagnosed with cancer -- advanced aggressive Malignant Melanoma with only a 20-30 percent chance of survival. Then, even more bad news, Joyce's cancer had progressed to Stage 4, and she was told that there was nothing to do but pray. They were both given death sentences.
Choose to Live (Morgan James Publishing -- November 2010) tells the story of what happens when Joyce and Kevin decided to step up, defy the odds, and do exactly that ... choose to live. The couple became passionate about discovering why cancer happens, how to prevent it and even reverse it.
They studied with top doctors in Europe and America, and together they beat all the odds. Kevin is walking again and they are both cancer free.
