  • It's Not About the Bike: My Journey Back to Life by Lance Armstrong
    When Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular cancer, the prognosis was not encouraging. When it spread to his lungs and brain, most medical professionals gave up hope for his recovery. But not Lance. He studied his disease, interviewed doctors, chose a treatment, and fought for his life. This isn't a book for the squeamish as it spares few medical details but it is a fabulous tribute to the strength of the human spirit and an inspiration to everyone.

How Patty responds could well stand as a model of how we would want to react in similar circumstances.

After he passed away he left these words behind, and his mother expressed her interest in seeing his words in print. Since its publication there have been articles appearing all over the country as well as appearances on NBC Nightly News and The Rosie O'Donnell Show. As in life, Charles continues to touch the lives of people through these simple words of love, hope, faith
