Overview

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.

WOW!!!! This was an emotional and powerful read! I felt like I was part of the family; living through all of the ups and downs of Trey�s cancer and the family�s joys and sorrows. I couldn�t put the book down because I just had to know what the next results would be. The book put me in the situation and I wanted to help with the constant changing game plans.

Lord knows it�s much more than that and to read his story you see that he definitely went through a lot to fight his cancer but he took each day as it came and never once doubted that in the end he�d beat it and as he did he�d
