I almost died during brain tumor surgery on February 13, 2002. I have been blessed… and I appreciate every day I’ve been given…

Someone reading that at the start of a book review… would most likely think… why would you put that there? Because on page 174 in this soul touching… cathartic… (for the author… and people like myself)… book… former New England Patriot… and stroke survivor… Tedy Bruschi… tells the author: “Mark, don’t forget-you’re a survivor now”… So be proud of being a survivor. Always be proud of that.” The author is… and I most assuredly am. The author Mark Herzlich is a professional football player who was part of the New York Giants Football team when they won the Super Bowl. Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way… let me make clear… what is to me… the most important thing about this book… that every potential reader should know. Yes there is football in this book… and yes the author’s life has been built around it… but in order of importance for potential readers… I would probably list football way down on the list as to why you should buy it. If you are facing a health challenge that is life threatening… or you have a loved one… regardless of their age… that is facing a life threatening situation… or if you are an individual such as myself… who was literally faced with a life and death situation… where you didn’t know if you would be alive the next day… this book is for you! To read about someone in exacting detail… going through very much of what you have gone through… from finding out with virtually no warning that you may die… to your courage shaking first encounter (unfortunately the first of uncountable encounters) with an MRI machine… to describing.. the even worse feeling (feeling isn’t a good enough word)… that once you’ve got past the elongated first obstacle of finishing the MRI… to the unimaginable… and incalculable… length of time… till you get the results of your latest MRI… and believe me… from the exact second your doctor informs you of your tumor or cancer… from that exact microsecond in time… your entire life… and your families entire life… has been changed forever… because… when you’re handed your original verdict… that started this entire journey to the abyss… of what your life has become… and may end with... it’s at times like this… regardless of what type of belief in the Lord you may… or may not have had… until this point in your life… I guarantee you… you will re-examine it from a different angle. The author… as in all other subjects in this book… discusses it openly… and honestly.

It is difficult for me to decide on some of the words I use in describing this book… because when you are talking about cancer… and tumors… and life and death… certain words are distasteful for someone who has (luckily) lived through a situation like this. I don’t want to say the book was enjoyable… even though I couldn’t put it down. I… after much inner searching… would rather say… that it was re-affirming… that what I went through… what I felt… faced… and accepted… as how I would face my “challenge”… was faced with an almost exact mindset of the author.

Before… during… and after… Mark shares with the reader… his undying love and appreciation of the wonderful family he was born into. Another affirmation that I have stated an infinite amount of times… and I will continue for all eternity… is... it would be impossible to get through an ordeal like this without a loving dedicated family. My family was my twenty-two year old son.

Mark’s ultimate reward… in addition to life… was a Super Bowl championship. My ultimate reward… was being able to share my son’s continued ascension into manhood… and two beautiful... feminine... angelic... Granddaughters... that I never would have met… If I didn’t win my fight.

That’s what this book is about. From diagnosis… to treatment…to suffering… to faith… to family… to goals and determination… and everything in between.

Yes… there is football… but this book reaffirms… there are things more important than football.

Remarkable story by a Remarkable Guy 14. Juni 2014
Von Patrick J. Daly, Esq. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A truly remarkable story by a remarkable guy. If you have any BC affiliation, you already know the story but to have Mark take you through the entire sequence of events from the time he was first diagnosed, to his initial reactions, to his steadfast determination to not only beat the disease but to play football again, to the support he received from his parents, friends, teammates, and everyone from BC as well as from literally thousands all over the US is just amazing. What a remarkable story. What a remarkable set of parents. What a magnificent support team from Wayne to Chestnut Hill to NYC and so many other places in between. Mark's story is an inspiration to all those who have been touched directly or indirectly by cancer. I was at Alumni Stadium for all of Mark's games and he will go down as one of BC's best and most memorable players, but nothing will top the goose bumps that everyone shared on that famous 9/4 when #94 rubbed the head of that Eagle statue and led the BC team out of the tunnel after conquering that horrible disease. All football glory aside, Mark will always be remembered as a hero and role model for more than his skills on the gridiron. After his playing days as a NY Giant are behind him, Mark is destined to be a huge success in whatever field of endeavor he wishes to pursue. He's a winner and we are all winners for having read his remarkable story. Inspirational plus!

good book 29. Juni 2014
Von sk - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I don't follow much sports or american football in this case, but I found out about Mark's story as cancer survivor from YouTube some time ago. This book also came into my knowledge and then I just decided to buy it. Good friend of mine is also a cancer survivor, that was partially the reason I wanted to read this book too. It was interesting story to read from Mark's perspective with all the ups and downs that cancer and all other health issues can cause, and not only to himself. Besides his story I also learnt a lot from american football too :)

I'd sincerely recommend to read this book.

Awesome Book! 10. Juni 2014
Von Jessica Milligan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Such an inspiring book! My husband is going through treatment for Ewing's Sarcoma now and the emotions, situations, joys and struggles that Mark had gone through really hit home. If you or anyone you know has ever been affected by cancer, or have ever had to overcome any huge hurdle in life, you should read this book! Proof that the journey can be just as important as the outcome!

Great read by a really good guy 3. Juli 2014
Von Marie G. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
As a Boston College alum and long-time Mark Herzlich fan, I was pre-disposed to like this book, but it was even better than I'd hoped.

"What It Takes" is an honest, sometimes gut-wrenching, account of Mark Herzlich's battle against an often-fatal cancer. What really spoke to me was the relationship with his parents and brother - a very strong support system, along with his best friend. His parents backed him up in what was a crucial, potentially life-or-death decision that would make the difference between having a chance, however slim, to play football again, or giving up that chance forever and having a more reliable shot at a cure. Very gutsy people, the Herzlichs.

Although we know the outcome, this is a riveting story, and well-crafted. I've met Mark very briefly, twice, and found him to be a personable, humble young man. I liked him even more after reading the book. He is a fierce, often brutal competitor on the field, and sets the bar for himself very high; cancer had a formidable foe in him. He is also, however, a gentle spirit who loves his family and fiancee (his relationship with his younger brother is special.) What It Takes is courage, love, perseverance and faith, something Herzy has in abundance.
