Call in to speak with the host
Powerful. Dynamic. Inspirational. These words just begin to describe the remarkable story told on the pages of “Purposefully Prepared To Persevere,” eloquently written by Eddie Connor. He is not only surviving cancer, he is thriving in life.
What makes his story even more remarkable is the fact he battled and beat cancer as a teenager. Today, the 20-something author, minister, inspirational speaker and amazing human being continues to share his triumphant story of how he made it to Hell and back.
At age 15, he was agonized by the news he had (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma). “Of course I thought ‘Why me?’” Connor recalls. He remembers how the radiation tormented his body, causing his hair to fall out and gain weight rapidly. “My appearance was bad. I didn’t even want to go out. It was Hell on Earth. There were times I felt like dying from the injections of chemotherapy.”
But his mother had other plans and told her son, Fight, fight, fight.”And thus through his mother’s persistence and a remarkable faith in God, and despite medical predictions, he came back from near death. Against all odds, Eddie Connor became a living testimony of the power of perseverance.
