by Joseph Fulton

This is a true story about Joseph Fulton and his battle with a cancerous brain tumor. He bares all the emotions he faced while battling a terminal illness, particularly his struggles with acceptance of the disease. As he can't escape cancer, he tries to find a reason for it through family, friends, mentors, and strangers. Five years later, he is grieving in different ways.
Tears, radiation, chemotherapy, seizures, and relationships changed Joseph Fulton's life in ways that he never expected. "Scarred" handles Fulton's struggle to accept his cancer diagnosis, his search for meaning, and deep topics dealing with his faith. He often questions God's punishment or wonders why he has been put him through this adversity. Cancer can either defeat him or make him stronger. Joseph's determination to be positive and live a normal life as much as possible shows his refusal to let cancer win. For the time he has left, whether it be one more day or a hundred years, Joseph wants to make the most he can by inspiring others.
About the author
Joseph Fulton is a pharmacist with a passion to teach future pharmacists, just like the mentors responsible for his growth and success in life. He's dedicated to his career and believes that work comes second to family and friends. Joseph often speaks at various cancer charity events and is a big proponent of caregivers who do so much for those afflicted with this terrible disease. Joseph is obsessed with sports of any kind, and he'll happily watch a baseball, lacrosse, or volleyball game. Like most washed-up athletes, he fell in love with golf. He is quite a hacker, but occasionally makes a birdie or two. Give him some beer and he'll break 80. Sundays, of course, are always meant for football.
