Summary

This is not simply the memoir of a cancer survivor. Nor is it just the memoir of a respected senator. This is an unprecedented glimpse into a man who is both. It is inspiration for people of all political persuasions on how to persevere and succeed-despite what the doctors may say, despite what the tests might show.

Author Biography

Senator Arlen Specter is Pennsylvania’s senior senator. First elected in 1980, he is now serving his fifth term. Throughout his Senate career, he has served on the Judiciary Committee, which he chaired in the 109th Congress (2005--2007) and continues to serve as its ranking member. Among his many other Senate duties, he is also a former chairman and current ranking member of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education.

Frank J. Scaturro is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He has served as counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee on Senator Specter’s staff, where he specializes in judicial nominations and constitutional law issues.
