"Patient Stories" book signing in South Lyon

Andrea King, author of the new book "Patient Stories: Coping with Life-Changing Illnesses," will host a book signing from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 28 at the Tuscan Café, 101 S. Lafayette St., South Lyon.
Through a compilation of real-life examples, the book gives the true voice and encounters of people who have been diagnosed with various chronic diseases or illnesses, and what they do on a day-to-day basis to remain healthy.
King tackles the topic by giving a first-person narrative for each story that leaves the individuals tone of their experiences.
When Ralph Bear was diagnosed with leukemia he was told by an oncologist he would be dead by 65. He was also told there was nothing he could do to strengthen the odds.
More than 14 years later, Ralph has outlived his cancer diagnosis and went on to create the idea of Patient Stories to help others in need.
What started with one man's vision to keep himself on a healthy track ends with a journalist who has met with people around the country to hear--and share--what they have and continue to go through, as well as what their health and life means to them today.
From what began as the website has now evolved into Patient Stories.
