Tom will sign copies of his book after his talk. Synopsis: On October 5 2007, Thomas Cappiello was diagnosed with inoperable Stage IIIA locally-advanced adenocarcinoma (Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer), an incurable disease. This book is the inspirational story of how he beat the odds and survived and thrived in the face of this devastating illness. This book is for patients and caregivers who want to know what life is like after getting a cancer diagnosis. The story is about overcoming the emotional turmoil and devastation of a cancer diagnosis, dealing with the disease, and making choices. Most of all, it's about living a full life each day. Cancer patients suddenly realize that time is a precious gift from God and there is no time to waste. By telling his story Cappiello seeks to inspire cancer patients to fight hard and live, with whatever time they have, with renewed purpose and energy. The journey is different for everyone, but no matter the stage of disease, this book aims to give cancer patients hope for living a cancer-free future.
