Description

Steve Buechler began telling his story within a week of his diagnosis with an email to his neighbors. Over the ensuing months, he composed over sixty such reports for an ever-expanding group of recipients. With the addition of a preface on lessons learned and an epilogue on identity changes, this compelling account documents and reflects upon his diagnosis, treatment, and recovery, including a detailed account of the stem cell transplant that saved his life.

Steve Buechler's narrative blends contemporaneous reports, granular detail, generalizable lessons, existential reflections, wry humor, an upbeat tone, a secular voice, and a positive outcome. The result is a moving, entertaining memoir written by someone who’s “been there and done that.” It demonstrates the value of telling our stories in the face of life-threatening illness, and it will appeal to all members of the cancer community as well as the broader reading public.
