Every once in awhile a book comes along that makes you want to shout about it from the rooftop. One Foot in Front of the Other by Mike Duhacek is that book for me, and this is the reason why.
In 2013, Mike began a solo mission called Help Me Bury Cancer. He took approximately 1,000,000 steps across the province of Ontario, Canada, in the cold and snowy month of February, pulling a 125 lb. sled behind him with the letters C-A-N-C-E-R on it, planning to bury those letters when he arrived, raising funds and cancer awareness for the Canadian Cancer Society along his journey.
One Foot in Front of the Other is a behind the scenes look at the physical and mental strength it took, ultimately offering the reader inspiration and hope.
This man is my son, and the book is dedicated to me, in tribute to the challenging battle with a rare cancer I fought from 2010-2013. Can I be objective? Probably not, but for now, I’ll be the girl on the rooftop shouting.
