Changing the Game Plan . . .

Awesome, touching, motivating, moving, captivating, victorious, powerful, fantastic, dynamic, heartfelt, tear jerker, and an amazing tale. Truly, words itself cannot describe the emotions sparked from walking this journey (alongside the Rood Family). In this amazing tale, its audience travels through each medical episode as the fluids flow through the veins . . . placing readers in the moment. And such a challenging moment it was.
The voices of many who shared their experiences (being among the family) no doubt gave great depth and insight into the footsteps personally taken.
The format, the authors, used to present their story was an impressive and thought out process. Its story and scenes are extremely well-developed and easy to follow. In the midst of reading this phenomenal and challenging venture, it’s as though one was truly walking the journey themselves. OMG, for an adult, the toxicity of this relationship is a devastating effect. Regardless, no child should ever have to endure its journey and all the many injections it can lead into. Truly, my heart goes out to ANY parent that has to experience the wrath of this toxicity inflicted upon their child. But just to know that this angel (Trey) fought long and hard to triumph fully overcome his battle was very inspirational.
This is definitely an educational and remarkable tale. I applaud the authors for exposing a marvelous story. There was so very much to learn from walking their journey. Surely, it’s a story of faith that will live in the minds of many for years to come; and makes for a wonderful Christmas stocking stuffer. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193937149X, Paperback)

Trey Rood was a young, healthy high school athlete when he received the diagnosis of stage III melanoma, which progressed to stage IV in two short years. With a five-year survival rate of five percent, Trey and his mother Cherie refused to accept the poor odds given by doctors or that the aggressive cancer would prevent Trey from ever attending college. Instead, they chose to fight with everything they had. And fight they did.
Their tireless search for treatment led them from home in Georgia, to Germany, and ultimately to Texas, where Trey was a pioneer participant at MD Anderson Cancer Center's adoptive T-cell therapy trial. With Trey's cancer now in remission, Trey, Cherie, and their family share their story here--a story of hope, encouragement, strength, and ultimately triumph. Their story of how, together, they beat cancer.
