heroes don’t wear red capes. They wear red bands.”
Albert Espinosa never wanted to write a book about
cancer—so he didn’t. Instead, he shares his most touching, funny, tragic, and
happy memories in the hopes that others, healthy and sick alike, can draw the
same strength and vitality from them.
At thirteen, Espinosa was diagnosed with cancer, and
he spent the next ten years in and out of hospitals, undergoing one daunting
procedure after another, starting with the amputation of his left leg. After
going on to lose a lung and half of his liver, he was finally declared cancer-free.
Only then did he realize that the one thing sadder than dying is not knowing
how to live. In this rich and rewarding book, Espinosa takes us into what he
calls “the yellow world,” a place where fear loses its meaning; where strangers
become, for a moment, your greatest allies; and where the lessons you learn
will nourish you for the rest of your life. Download and start listening now!
