Held: A Memoir from Cancer Survivor and Amputee Melissa Eadie
Melissa Eadie was first diagnosed with cancer at the tender age of 14. While her peers were experiencing high school, the latest trends, and youthful ambitions, Melissa became familiar with the four corners of her hospital room.
For the next 10+ years, "cancer," was a part of her everyday vocabulary. Tragically, her second diagnosis at 19 resulted in the loss of her right leg. A two-time cancer survivor and above knee amputee, Melissa’s life is the definition of strength and perseverance, but she knows that victory includes the painful fight to the finish line.
