New book by David. H. Brantley Finds Positivity in Crohn’s Disease, Cancer
Date:3/12/2015

Wilmington, N.C. (PRWEB) March 13, 2015

When doctors told author David H. Brantley that he had six months to live because of his Crohn’s disease, he remained resilient. Thirty years later, doctors operated on Brantley and found his colorectal cancer was far worse than they imagined. Still, Brantley persevered.

In his new memoir, “Duct Tape Won’t Stick to a Leaky Ostomy Bag: One Man’s Fight against Crohn’s Disease and Cancer” (published by Archway Publishing), Brantley looks back at his life, recounting his big childhood dreams and his accomplishments as an adult, and celebrates what he says he is best at – beating the odds.

Conversational and humorous in tone, “Duct Tape Won’t Stick to a Leaky Ostomy Bag” takes an unconventional look at Crohn’s disease and cancer, offering a real yet positive look at both diseases. Rather than lamenting his illnesses, Brantley discusses how his trials shaped him into the strong person he is today.

Brantley believes that diseases do not define their patients; it is how the patient chooses to fight the disease that is the true definition of a person’s character. Through his book, Brantley hopes readers will rediscover genuine appreciation for their lives and the motivation to keep reaching for their dreams, no matter what obstacles await them.

“Cancer doesn’t have to be a maudlin, Hollywood Hallmark movie of the week,” Brantley says. “It can be an open door to moving forward and finding success in ways one never thought imaginable.”
