Chris Spielman was a high school and Ohio State football legend and a four-time Pro Bowl linebacker, but he didn't tackle his toughest opponent until his playing career was almost over. In 1998, his wife, Stefanie, was diagnosed with breast cancer. So began an 11-year journey that brought joy and suffering to the Spielmans, as well as hope and inspiration to thousands of others.

In That's Why I'm Here, Spielman traces his storied career, recalls his courtship of Stefanie Belcher, cherishes the growth of their four children, and invokes the deep spiritual faith that gave their family wisdom and comfort in times of struggle. Though there are plenty of on-the-field tales in the book, it's not just for football fans. It's for people whose lives have been touched by cancer, for people whose own faith has wavered, and for people who want to meet a woman of tremendous beauty, grace and strength.

Though Stefanie passed away on November 19, 2009, her memory and inspiration live on. With laughter and tears, joy and heartbreak, this book reminds us that her spirit is still here.

    " I am glad that a book has been written about one of the bravest women. I wish it had been focused more on Stefanie and less on football. "

    " It may jump around a bit, but it's because it's not a "story", it's a conversation. Chris shows us how ordinary people can become truly extraordinary simply through the decisions they make as they go about their daily lives. And the "bad" in life doesn't have to overcome us, we simply have to follow Stef's "marching orders" of "no doom and gloom". "

    " what a unbelievable human being Stefanie was. I could only hope to be 1/2 the woman she was while battling cancer for 10 years and definately changes my outlook on accepting what God gives us "
