Game, Set, Life
My Match with Crohn's and Cancer
by Wayne J Street, Jr.
'I should have been at the tree farm, fighting with my sister over the perfect tree. I missed out on the big game and the most recent school dance. Why? Because I didn't have control of when I could go to the bathroom. So I was stuck at home with Planet of the Apes. I hate that movie.'
High school is hard enough without worrying about your reputation, but teen embarrassment reaches new levels for Wayne J. Street, Jr. What starts as severe stomach cramps quickly sidelines the tennis standout for fear of losing control of more than just his serve. Crippled with pain and embarrassment, he conceals his struggles until his diminishing frame threatens to expel the truth. Wayne has officially joined the four thousand males diagnosed with Crohn's disease each year. By the age of twenty-five, he will also face a cancer that would put fear into any man. But with the stamina and determination of a true athlete, Wayne embarks on a doctor's visit that bruises more than his ego. Written with Wayne's wit and dry humor, what could easily be a sob story of agonizing treatments quickly evolves into a story toned with personality and perseverance. Friends and family rally around Wayne as he makes his amazing journey from a na´ve teen to death bed to proud father, and he learns what doesn't kill him, really does make him stronger.
Author Wayne J. Street, Jr. resides in Cotati, California, with his wife, Tiffany, and their son, William. He is a seven-year survivor of testicular cancer and has battled Crohn's disease for the past fourteen years. He is still playing tennis.
