|About the Book|
From Stage IV to Center Stage is a story of extraordinary courage, strength, and deep spirituality. Denise DeSimones journey began the moment she opened her eyes in a post-op ward after a routine biopsy to determine the pathology of the lump on her neck and was told that she had cancer. Given three months to live because of stage IV throat and neck cancer, to singing the National Anthem before a Red Sox game at Fenway Park in Boston, to riding her bicycle eighty-five miles in one day to raise money for childrens cancer research with the Pan Mass Challenge, all in less than two years, is proof that the unexpected can be achieved. Denise named cancer PIN-short for pain in the neck-and entered into a dialogue with PIN and learned rich and enlightening lessons. Denise learned that self-love is the all-time greatest healer.
