I simply hope my story give others hope to not only survive, but ultimately excel in life.

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly one in every four deaths, which is estimated to be around 1,600 people per day, can be attributed to cancer. This frightening number is all the more reason to enjoy a survival story, especially when it’s a story of two people inspiring one another to not only survive, but also improve their overall post-cancer life.

Author and songwriter Stowe Dailey Shockey began writing “Flying High” as a biography of Calvin Lehew, who is an entrepreneur extraordinaire, cancer survivor and fascinating rags-to-riches story. In time, Shockey’s own cancer would progress forcing her to confront her fears of traditional medicine and life in general.

Fortunately for Shockey, Lehew survived his battle with cancer as well and inspired her to take action, veritably saving her life.

As these two authors wrote “Flying High,” their shared struggles and successes inspired them to become better versions of themselves. By coming so close to the end of her life, Shockey realized the importance of living her life fully.

Shockey has gone on to achieve many of her dreams in life since overcoming cancer. She hopes that readers of “Flying High” will be inspired to do the same.
