Cancer is for Old(er) People

By: Brett M. Cordes and Amy Calkins Teague, Kyle Moses


About the Book


Recounting his experience with cancer as a 19-year-old boy, Brett Cordes shares his extraordinary journey, including all of the nitty gritty details that one may not ordinarily hear when reading about others’ battles with cancer. His childhood friend, Amy Calkins Teague, discusses Brett’s journey from her perspective, as well as the experiences from her own fight against ovarian cancer. From their diagnosis to their ultimate recovery from the disease, Brett and Amy share their story- proving that cancer does not have to define you. Another of Brett’s friends, Kyle Moses, offers his own story in describing his journey through this all-too-familiar struggle with the disease. With key pieces of advice and inspirational stories, this novel helps those not only battling cancer to keep pushing forward, but those caregivers, friends and family who have loved ones who are sick.

    Very good book

    Since I knew one of the writers, Kyle Moses, it was extremely interesting to me. I was surprised to find how thoroughly involved I became with the other 2 stories. My sister is a 15-year cancer survivor at MDA. So it was spellbinding to me.
