Brandi Benson joins us to discuss her book, The Enemy Inside Me – A Young Soldier’s Unexpected Battle With Cancer. Brandi Benson had only recently come into her new life as a Soldier in the U.S. Army when she was sent to wartime Iraq, just months after basic training. She forms a mental picture of the threats she might face, composed of M16s, hand grenades, and land mines. Her first encounter with a dangerous threat comes during an aero plane ride to a hospital in Germany and ironically propels her toward an internal battle that leaves her reeling in shock. Once a vibrant 24-year old wearing the picture of fitness and perfect health, Brandi faces a different type of war that requires new weapons: hope, faith, and strength. This memoir is a moving, yet true account of a young Soldier’s fight with cancer that begins miles away from enemy lines. In this tear jerking story she shares her journey of her Ewing Sarcoma diagnosis during her deployment to Iraq in 2008. Her journey is a gripping reminder that every moment is a gift and every breath is a blessing. Listeners are welcome to dial in at 657-383-0898 to join us!
