Clearing the Toughest Hurdle

True Story of a Brain Tumor Survivor and Champion Hurdler

by Amy Sokalski LaNoue

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Those who have known Amy Sokalski LaNoue for a long time know that she has a strong tendency to confront challenges differently than most…let’s say…more directly. For example, while Amy claimed many victories on high school tracks, she was unable to capture the ultimate goal at that time, a Pennsylvania high school state championship. This competition was held four hours away on the same track every year at Shippensburg University. With high school over and multiple college scholarships on the table, Amy, of course, chose to attend Shippensburg – where she later set and owned Pennsylvania’s 100-meter hurdle record. Amy used a similar approach when presented with her brain tumor. With intense determination, and her sense of humor, she methodically confronted this challenge with a new set of coaches (doctors) and teammates (friends and family). With a desire to assist others who may face a similar situation, Amy shares the options, decisions, and even the actual medical reports of her condition in this inspirational book from the onset of symptoms through today.
