"Cancer on my Mind" book event, Saturday, March 19th!

Florey's Books welcomes local author Walter Kornichuk to read and discuss his book "Cancer on my Mind".

***Saturday, March 19th, 2-4pm***

About the book:

"Cancer on my Mind, by Walter Kornichuk, is atypical among non-fiction brain tumor survivor books because it is narrated by a talking tumor that I battle for my survival. Applying a cancer patient versus brain tumor (man against himself) approach to surviving a brain tumor enabled me to learn about my enemy, apply a “never give up attitude” to try to defeat it, and provide insight into what a cancer patient deals with mentally and physically. The book is unique and worthwhile because the tumor dialogue is outrageously funny, bringing humor to a life-and-death struggle that has touched the lives of many Americans."

About the author:

In 2000, Walter Kornichuk was diagnosed with a brain tumor and given a 40 percent chance to survive five years. He is happy to celebrate his tenth year of cancer-free living. He has been a volunteer for the National Brain Tumor Society-Patient and Caregiver Support Network since 2006. Walter is a Lead Transportation Security Officer for a private aviation security company at San Francisco International Airport.
