A Cancer Colored Sunrise

by Ryan Nichols

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

A work of poetry written from the perspective of a stage 4 brain cancer paitent, given few chances at a second chance at life. Each poem is inevitably linked to the rest: As the work as a whole is a testament of young man destined to live despite the odds against him.


A work of poetry literally written in and out of the hospital while in the throws of stage 4 brain cancer. While it's cetainly very personal at times, it's also personable in the sense that any reader can, in some form or fashion, relate to the gamut of emotions that I incurred while writing this book. The poetry in this book doesn't abide by any particular form. It's essentially free-verse, off the cuff poetry.
