Reviews of I Chose...Live
"I found the book to be inspirational and informational. Inspiration from the standpoint of demonstrating Mike's never say quit attitude and being driven by the love for his family. Informational in that the book makes you realize that doctor's are not infallible. Mistakes can be made and diagnosis missed. Also, the genuine love for the guidance from God's hand is evident." - Roy
"I Chose… Live reveals the many challenges faced by patients who are living with cancer. Mr. Coy shares his personal cancer journey with passion and blunt honesty. His strength and determination is well-communicated in these pages. He challenges those who read it to be informed, get screened, pray in faith, and to live. His decision to share his experience and knowledge that he gained will, without a doubt… “make a difference”. - Elizabeth
"The book beautifully conveyed the mental and emotional strength it takes to face cancer and to keep one’s sanity during the grueling regiment known as “cancer treatment”. I got a true sense of Mikes deep personal committment to himself and his family to LIVE..Kudos to you Mike." - Janice
"I Chose… Live is not only informative to any and all readers, but will make you want to strive to better yourself. Mike's character traits are honarable, and should be seen more in our society. A Christian, a leader, a team player throughout the years, a hard working family man, and a fighting cancer survivor with a great sense of humor, Mike's words will make a difference." - Carole
"In just 8 chapters Mike touches on so many important things that trigger deep thought. I've been on the fence about vaccinating my teenagers with the HPV vaccine. There is absolutely no doubt that after reading Mike's book, my teenagers will be getting the HPV vaccine. The book is complex but yet easy to read--one minute full of jokes, the next a Bible lesson, then you're crying just because Mike is so honest about his feelings. Most importantly Mike's book reiterates the importance of listening to your body and choosing to do whatever it takes to LIVE. My favorite quote from Mike is, "There is really no excuse for waiting to get checked or waiting to make a preventative change in your life." "TODAY is what we've got."
Thanks Mike for the motivation. Your book is full of words to LIVE by." - Jennie
