About the Book

Throughout his career in physical therapy Mark had been accustomed to helping others who depended on his expertise for their rehabilitative care. Imagine his surprise when he sought medical attention for a “nagging cough” and soon learned he had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Now, his diagnosis forced him to rely on other experts.

Victor Not Victim is Mark’s personal journey of his diagnosis, treatment, and eventual resolution. It’s the inspirational story of a cancer survivor told from the point of view of a medical practitioner faced, as a lay person, with the challenge of surviving a devastating illness.

In this book Mark attempts to provide a unique insight to his battle with cancer. His casual style is intended to capture the same conversational tone shared with other patients he met along the way. Through his use of humor and wit, Mark is hopeful that the reader is inspired to wage their own personal war on the “doom and gloom” often associated with cancer as he describes the positive physical, mental, spiritual and emotional attitude he maintained throughout his battle to become the Victor Not Victim.
