My recently published book “I Can Appreciate That” is a collection of essays centered on the themes of Appreciation and Gratitude. Inspired by my teenage son’s question “Why do you always have to be so negative?”, I set out to find the answer – for him, and myself. What followed was a year-long exploration of pivotal events in my life – most of which I originally viewed cynically or negatively – including my experiences with losing loved ones to cancer. What I discovered was that even in the darkest times, there were amazing, life-changing blessings hiding in plain sight.
In the book, I write at length about a young boy named Lake Bozman – a member of the CURE family who sadly earned his wings in May of 2015. In his short time here on Earth, Lake had such a profound and lasting effect on me (and so many others). To honor his legacy, a portion of proceeds for all sales of “I Can Appreciate That” will forever be donated to his named fund at CURE. Each September, in support of National Childhood Cancer Month, it is our intent to donate 100% of all net proceeds for the book to CURE.
