On his 19th birthday and the day after his freshman year at the University of Georgia, Jack McDermott was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Sitting right behind his optic nerves, the tumor rapidly threatened to take his vision, and Jack was rushed into surgery. For the next six months, he fought the battle of his life. Told with honesty, tenderness, and compassion, All the Above chronicles his mom's emotional struggle as she and her family did everything possible to help Jack survive brain cancer. This inspiring true story of courage, optimism, and hope will touch all those whose world has changed in a day, and who have faced grief and loss.show more
