There is not a doubt in my mind that Ward Foley is probably one of the most inspiring and amazing persons—let alone writer—out there in the world today. Born with a life-threatening and life-debilitating disease only to overcome it and then be burned in a donut shop as a teenager, beaten, nearly killed in a car accident and forced to endure the loss of a close friend, Ward Foley has not had it easy. But no one would ever suspect it. His optimism, faith and deep understanding of his life, purpose and mission exude through every page, and I am sure he’s a delight in person. The book was thoroughly professional—the title (albeit cheesy, at first look) works, the cover design is appealing and the editing was outstanding. This is the perfect book for people who enjoy being (and or need to feel) inspired by, rather than dragged through the trenches of, life’s ups and downs. For those filling their Amazon shopping carts with books like The Last Lecture, Big Russ and Me and Tuesdays With Morrie, they should add this one to the list.
“Ward Foley has limitless wisdom, courage, warmth, and humor to share with those facing so many of life’s major transitions and hardships. It all comes shining through in Thank My Lucky Scars”
Sandy Kuhlman, Board of Directors, National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization
As a writer, Ward Foley is the mutant love child of William S. Burroughs and John Grisham. As a person, he comforts the afflicted and afflicts thecomfortable. His is an inspiration, and his story needs to be read.
Tim Keown, Senior Writer ESPN The Magazine
“When you find a book like this that makes you forget your own troubles for a minute, buy it! What a story. Ward Foley’s been through it all. Trust his story to get you through too!”
Ed Hearn, Former New York Mets Catcher and cancer survivor, Author of Conquering Life’s Curves.
