In his book, CHE-MOment, Chris J. Hamilton tells his story battling four different types of cancer, including AML M2 Leukemia.
This book was written to guide not only cancer patients and their families through this challenging experience, but also to serve as an uplifting, real-life perspective when life throws curve balls. The book’s title refers to the author’s key moments that changed his life, faith and attitude forever.
Hamilton was working in the medical industry when he found out he had throat and thyroid cancer. While undergoing treatments for several months in 2011, he next learned that he had acute myeloid leukemia extending his treatments two more years; including a necessary and risky stem cell transplant.
“I took out 90% of the pain because I wanted to keep the book motivational,” says Hamilton.
Hamilton’s heartwarming story gives the reader a real-life guide on how to beat the odds. “I wanted to inspire people. Right now, the book is doing exactly what I wanted it to; reach cancer patients and help them navigate through their own journeys.”
The book engages, educates the reader and includes a medical terminology section to define difficult cancer terms. CHE-MOment includes a few of Hamilton’s blog entries and his take on fighting the illness through diet, exercise, and attitude. CHE-MOment is available on the following websites; AuthorHouse, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Google Books, Books-A-Million, ebay Books, The Book Depository, Kobo Books and in select bookstores.
