"My Life Will Go On" is a memoir of Edward Betancourt. He goes through life like many children of immigrants except he has a desire to excel in life, but his dreams are dashed by unexpected tragic events.

Description
It's the story of Betancourt's life from the beginning, his journey through life from a humble childhood, his education, his two tours in Vietnam, and his first wife. Betancourt's journey takes off with his second wife and his two children surviving the loss of their first child, and then later the loss of his only son who was handsome, intelligent, talented, and loved by everyone. A teenager with a great future ahead of him, while fighting an aggressive form of cancer for almost three years, continued with his drama class, water polo, and his love for music. While so sick and enduring chemo, radiation, and surgeries, he enjoyed meeting some of Hollywood's famous movie stars, TV stars, famous singers, and famous athletes among others who befriended him at the children's hospital. Betancourt's writes: "Michel, my son, is the star of my book. He endured more suffering and pain than I or anybody could have taken without complaint. I describe in painful detail as much as I can with graphic color photos. It was his wish that his story and that of his sister be told. It was also his inspiration, his courage, and his will to live and enjoy the time he had as best as he could. This book is more of his legacy than mine."
