HUNDRED PERCENT CHANCE follows the story of a twenty-year old college student who was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia while studying overseas in Lancaster, England. He notices — and then ignores — obvious early symptoms, as you might expect from someone at that age so far from home.

This memoir is funny and angry and hopeful and sad and realistic. A coming-of-age story with cancer, set mostly in Seattle of the early nineties, it does not pretend that the path to lasting health comes easily or that a sunny disposition is all you need for everything to work out. It is about much more than just beating cancer: tackling adversity through patience and perseverance, stumbling often and getting back up anyway, leaning on laughter and love and friendship to find a path through the challenges life throws our way.

A portion of all sales of this book will be donated to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
