The author is a recovered cancer patient who was told Christmas in 1982 would be "HIS LAST ONE".   While going through numerous hospitalizations to receive the very worse Chemotherapy that was available in 1982/83, he decided to keep a journal.   He put together a manuscript while treating and was able to gather all Physician Reports, Hospitalization Discharge Summary’s, and all pertinent testing results to support his unbelievable recovery.   All of this was done to leave something to his boys, Steven age 7, and Erik age 5 at that time!Those two boys are now grown men and have 5 children between them, and believe me, none ofthose children will ever QUIT @ anything!Nothing better than being called "POP POP".   This author was Volunteer of the Year in 1984/85 for ACS (American Cancer Society) for the State of NJ. That was for raising over $85,000.00 as Chairperson for Swim Marathons. He also was involved in many programs at ACS,including hours of participation in creating the"CVP", The Cancer Visitation Program.   Numerous articles were written about him over the years by local newspaper writers. He wrote a short story for canceradvocacynow.org under "Everyday Heroes" and was informed that "His Story" had the most hits at that time.   Going through this "Dreaded Disease" & Winning the Battle gives Steven P. Winkler all the credentials needed to promote this BOOK!  This Author has a Goal to live long enough to see these 5 Grandchildren grow into good solid citizens & become "special" people....
