July 30th, 2004 was a day that would change Brad Lubkens life forever. It was the day he was diagnosed with late stage two Testicular Cancer. The disease would ultimately test his determination, his strength, and his perception of the world. It would make the seemingly simple task of eating a banana a challenge worth celebrating once finished. It would disrupt his plans of maintaining his status as a full-time college student, and force him to become a full-time chemotherapy recipient. But, it would also teach him how to view the world in a way he never thought imaginable. Cancer was a cursed disease which would ultimately become what he can now call, The best thing to have ever happened to me. Its Just Cancer is actually two books in one. Part one illustrates what life was like before, during, and after his four surgeries and four rounds of chemotherapy. Part two explains what he learned from the ordeal. Brad now lives his life with the realization that there was a time when death was a very real possibility. He strives to see the good in all things and appreciates life. His lessons learned are invaluable to you, the reader. Its Just Cancer is a story about a very serious topic, yet written with a mix of humor, honesty, humility, and factual specifics. If you are in the process of fighting cancer, or are a family member or friend of somebody who is, Its Just Cancer is a must read. Brad Lubken wrote this book for anybody who has been affected by cancer. But, first and foremost, he wrote this book for other young people fighting cancer because when he went through his treatment, he felt alone. He could not relate to the older people he met in the chemo ward and he found the scariest part of his treatment was not knowing what to expect. He hopes this book will serve as the bridge to their treatment he was not fortunate enough to have during his. Enjoy!
