Tracing the footsteps of Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson, Madison Oliver, an engineer and author, was seduced by the warm tropical trade winds of the South Pacific Islands. Trouble, however, sometimes comes to paradise. Oliver is diagnosed with cancer and must leave his paradise to have radical neck surgery in New York City. The author was diagnosed with his first secondary tumor at the age of forty-four. Three years later, a new tumor developed on the opposite side of his neck requiring more radical surgery. After developing an exercise program that included running two marathons and completing a successful career, cancer struck again. Madison Olivers encounter with recurring cancer, which he likens to the unpredictable attack of a hooded cobra, not only has a message for his fellow cancer survivors, but is inspiring, moving, and the pinnacle of bravery.
