I CHOOSE TO FIGHT is the heart-warming story of a young mans courage, the power of love and the strength of the human spirit - Midshipman Tom Harpers miraculous victory over cancer. Tom was a handsome 19-year-old attending the prestigious United States Naval Academy. He had earned a spot on Navys varsity football team while only a freshman. Before the Michigan game a shattering diagnosis revealed a malignant tumor. Tom had testicular cancer, which had spread throughout his body and was nearing its final, fatal stage. Given less than an 8% chance to live, he suffered through two brutal years of experimental radiation and chemotherapy. He lost his muscle tone and strength - dropping fifty pounds in less than a month. Yet Tom emphasized life, not death - and replaced fear with enthusiasm. He discovered that love and hope were potent remedies. On the verge of being out-processed as medically unfit, he made a commitment to survive. Tom had his familys deep faith, the motivation and support of the Academy, his love of sport, his trust in God and many friends who lent him strength. His story we can all use, to better attend our daily problems with determination and courage.
