The foundation of this book is about sticking to your core values, living life 100%, surrounding yourself with the right people, and loving those around you. David Koop had it all—a storied business career, beautiful son, and prospects as far as the eye could see. Then a surprise cancer diagnosis turned his life upside down. It was osteo sarcoma—a form of bone cancer—and it was growing on his spine. Doctors told him to get his affairs in order. Years later, Koop continues to beat the odds. Cancer: It’s a Good Thing I Got It! is his eye-opening account of a remarkable journey through hospitals, treatments, friendships and emotions as he struggles to maintain a positive attitude and will to live. In this frank and uncensored look at one man’s battle with cancer, Koop reflects on his life before and after the diagnosis. The surprising conclusion will leave you awed at the strength of the human spirit: far from a death sentence, the medical woes unleash a powerful self-assessment that leads Koop to a whole new sense of purpose—and the love he has sought all his life. Full of humor and occasional grief, this memoir of a life still in progress will move you to make changes for the better. You’ll come away inspired to live your life to the fullest and embrace the gift of personal relationships. And you’ll find hope for meeting the unexpected challenges that can strike when you least expect.
