Radiate!

RADIATE was written by Marley Harbuck Gibson who grew up in my hometown of Brundidge, Alabama, and cheered at my high school, Pike Liberal Arts School. It is based on the true story of her cancer survival while a teenager in high school. The book is due out soon and I can't wait to read it!

                                                     

Hayley Matthews is determined to be the best cheerleader she can. She works hard and pushes herself 110% all the time....Then Hayley finds a lump on her leg. The diagnosis is cancer. The prognosis is unclear. She could lose her leg. Or maybe her life. At first Haley is scared, terrified. In an instant, everything she’s worked for seems out of reach. But Haley is strong. She’s going to fight this disease. She will not let it take her life or her dreams.  (Amazon.com)
