First Survivor: The Impossible Childhood Cancer Breakthrough by Mark Unger
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Every parent prays to everything they find holy that they never hear the words 'your child has cancer'. The Unger's were no different than any other parents, their son Louis, was no different than any other little boy. First Survivor: The Impossible Childhood Cancer Breakthrough is a story of this family suffering through and eventually triumphing over what was initially a death sentence for their three year old boy. Mark Unger lays out each agonizing treatment, all of the set backs, every prayed for break through during that horrifying five years.
First Survivor is not an easy book to read, especially when you think about all of those families who didn't get the happy ending that the Unger's were so lucky to get. Louis is now a grown man and there couldn't have been a better outcome from that horrible ordeal for him and his entire family.
