An inspiring story of how one man’s self-discipline and determination beat cancer, built a baseball team, and strengthened a family

Cancer on the Brain takes you on an emotional roller coaster as you experience the trials of Jay Lefevers, a man who struggles with severe medical conditions, the challenges of a growing business, and a little league baseball team that isn’t supposed to win.

As he works to turn a group of inner city kids—many from rough backgrounds—into a winning baseball team, the author faces even bigger challenges: a brain tumor and cancer. His story of treatment and recovery will grab you by the heart and never let go. Rather than giving in to self-pity, the author uses his illness to teach his players, his family, and his workmates the amazing power of determination.

A lifelong baseball fan and accomplished athlete, the author doesn’t let his condition stop him from coaching kids from the tough side of Phoenix—or indulging his lively sense of humor. As he comes to appreciate the challenges his players face on a daily basis and leads them to victory, he deepens in his dedication to the team and his faith in his own destiny.

Coaches, cancer survivors, entrepreneurs and parents will appreciate the invincible attitude of the man who survived cancer on the brain.
