Also, he had one of the most deadly cancers but he had family that stayed by his side during the entire thing and he had teammates the stayed by his side and once he found out the cancer was gone he was obviously very happy as anyone would be when they find out the cancer is gone and he got drafted to his home town team and is one of the best running backs. And in a time when so much is virtual, and so many activities cancelled, the timing of his book release is just right. Most of the time we are not actually facing dangerous situations, we are facing situations that feel dangerous but really aren’t. Those fears can sometimes be fixed but the base emotion of fear is no more a choice than any other animal instinct. Focusing on personal growth, the meaning of true significance, and the faith that guided him through his most trying moments, Conner's warm, deeply personal, and inspiring story offers wisdom and advice for anyone who has faced adversity or the loss their dreams--and everyone who wants to learn how to tackle life's problems with dignity, grit, and confidence.
