Preparing for Publication

After writing and rewriting, my original manuscript has grown into a final copy. With little else to do but finalize changes and convert to paperback, my book will be available for purchase on May  17, 2015.  On the Right Track, A Student’s Memoir of Research, Advancement, and  Holding  on to Hope will be available for purchase on Amazon.com.

In my story, l recall  my first year in the Science Research Program at Ridgefield High School. The year truly changed my life. I’ve discovered so  many  incredible things about cancer and  cancer research so far.  I’ve learned about new strategies for treating cancer that have the potential to change the way we think about the disease entirely.

From the research I’ve done, I can tell that research is leading cancer treatments to a place where there will be less side effects and fewer deaths.   New methods  developed in the past few years for detecting cancer have  worked  extremely well.  There are hundreds of new drugs being studied that can go into clinical trials hopefully in the next decade. Progress is being made. I promise.

I hope to provide a taste of the impact and success of cancer research thus far in my book, but also the progress that I’ve made personally.  From emailing researchers to  reading articles,  every step is leading to a better future for those affected by cancer.  Step by step, I’m taking a very long journey, but I know I’m On The Right Track.
