Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0757317820, Paperback)

In the scoreboard of life, Pat Williams has achieved some impressive numbers: he's run 58 marathons, is the father of 19 children, and has lead 23 teams to the NBA playoffs, taking the Philadelphia 76ers and the Orlando Magic to the finals five times.

In 2011, Pat added another statistic—he became one of the millions with cancer and his would be a rare and incurable blood cancer called multiple myeloma. Calling on his faith and fighting spirit, Pat's mantra became, "the mission is remission", and after stem cell treatment and rounds of chemotherapy, the myeloma could no longer be detected.

Pat's story is ultimately about faith, family, and relying on a different winning team—his doctors. It is also about six healing factors that saw him through, which he offers here as an encouraging resource for patients and their loved ones. Today, in addition to his work with the Orlando Magic, Pat spends many hours on the board of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. He is a master motivator, change agent, and champion at heart; this is his rallying cry to inspire, educate, and lead others on to victory.
