This book was written to document Brandi's journey, as well as create awareness and sensitize people on what Ewing's Sarcoma really is. I personally had never heard of it before getting Brandi's manuscript in my hands, and I can tell you - This book is a stunning exploration of life, risks, rebellion, and the fight to stay alive. The release of the book also celebrates her 10 years as a Cancer Survivor (as she conquered the enemy inside her). - Alex Okoroji (Publisher).
ABOUT THE BOOK
She had only recently come into her new life as a soldier in the U.S. Army when she was sent to wartime Iraq, just months after basic training. Brandi Benson forms a mental picture of the threats she might face, composed of M16s, hand grenades, and land mines. Her first encounter with a dangerous threat comes during an airplane ride to a hospital in Germany and ironically propels her toward an internal battle that leaves her reeling in shock. To Brandi's surprise, this threat does not appear in the form of men with machine guns, but on a medical scan that reads, Ewing's Sarcoma.
The Book is available for sale on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indiebound and bookstores around the world. You can also buy at the discounted price on her Official Website www.BrandiLBenson.com.
