Romping with the Big C
by Em Poppel
Romping With the “Big C” is an inspiring story, of my brother Lawrence’s two bouts of stage 4 cancer; the second of which placed him in a wheelchair as a paraplegic. The first diagnosis was July 4th, 1995. It was non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Almost seven years later on Father’s Day weekend, this stage 4 cancer came back with a vengeance. 50% of Author's Proceeds will be Donated to Cancer Research
