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.
