Long For Life

Brandon Harrison

I just did my best to remember to tell myself 'I can and will change my life for the better, ' page 40, Long for Life.

It is inevitable that, at some point, everyone will confront some sort of challenge, adversity, or obstacle in life. Survivor, Brandon Harrison, however, faced more than a challenge. His cancer diagnosis at a young age came with a slim twenty-five percent chance of surviving through childhood, only then to suffer two hemorrhagic strokes in his teens. Brandon Harrison chose to claim his life back and raise money by longboarding across Canada with his father, Michael.

Tragically, Harrison's trip was cut short when he suffered a third hemorrhagic stroke at their second Heart and Stroke fundraiser and he woke up from a coma half-paralyzed on his twentieth birthday. After learning to stand, walk, and ride again, Harrison would finish his cross-country mission on the third-year anniversary of the day he nearly lost his life from the paralyzing stroke.

Long for Life is Brandon's mind-boggling story of 28 years: a diversity of drama, suspense, adventure, and curiosity full of twists that will inspire readers aged mid-teens to sixty to live the best possible life they can. Long for Life is sure to stir readers to weather life's misfortunes by working hard, believing in themselves, and never giving up, no matter what life throws at them. To live their lives to the fullest. To know without a reasonable doubt that they, too, can overcome any and all obstacles that life may throw at them
