Overview

Trevor Smith Schaefer was the boy who had everything. Then the piercing headaches came and up-ended his world. A brain cancer diagnosis just after his thirteenth birthday marked the start of a journey of recovery and personal growth. With his mother, Trevor became an advocate for children with cancer and a champion for the protection of small communities from environmental contamination leading to disease clusters.

This true story is a must-read for anyone who has faced seemingly insurmountable personal challenges in a world that has stopped listening. Through Trevor’s own trek to recovery and triumph, we learn that embracing one’s physical and emotional pain, and facing up to one’s mistakes, can often be the first step toward progress. "The Boy on the Lake" is an easy-to-read reference on how America’s small towns, and the children who live in them, are slipping through the cracks of environmental overreach and falling victim to a broken system, one that has come under review in Washington and has led to the creation of United States Senate Bill S.76, Trevor’s Law.

Susan Rosser is the co-author of two national and international bestsellers, "Just Desserts" and "A Matter of Betrayal". She is a former press deputy for two Los Angeles County Supervisors.

    I have known this family for several years. I have known Trevor

    I have known this family for several years. I have known Trevor since he was a baby. Charlie was an extremely self-centered, uninvolved Mother to Trevor. This book is not meant to help others. It is very self-serving and narcissistic.She takes part of the truth about the family and twists it to sound like she was an angel. She is a name dropper and cared only about money and material things. No one cares about what her workout routine was or her lies that she had a close relationship with famous people.I give this book a big thumbs down.
