Bold New Memoir Cancer-It’s a Good Thing I Got It! Published by Outskirts Press

Bestselling author and renowned motivational speaker David A. Koop tells how he used the death sentence of a bone cancer diagnosis to inspire him to live his life to the fullest in this eye-opening memoir of a man who still continues to beat the odds.

Salem, OR, January 05, 2012 --( Author and serial entrepreneur David A. Koop announced today the release of Cancer – It’s a Good Thing I Got It, The Life Story of a Very Lucky Man, published by Outskirts Press. As the title suggests, David A. Koop’s humorously ironic view of his cancer diagnosis takes readers along a remarkable journey through hospitals and treatment centers, but also through his own spirited self-assessment as he creates a new purpose for his life and a strengthened will to survive.

David A. Koop had already conquered the world of business and was living a life full of future prospects when a surprise cancer diagnosis turned his once enviable world upside down. Osteo sarcoma, a form of bone cancer, was growing on his spine, he was told. His doctors also told him he’d better get his affairs in order.

Now, five years later, Koop continues to live his life to the fullest. “Victim” is not in his vocabulary. Koop is kicking off the New Year with a virtual book tour through the blogosphere and on social networks. Click here for his new book video for the tour.

Cancer – It’s a Good Thing I Go It! is a candid and uncensored look at one man’s battle with cancer, but it is a story that is filled with far more humor than grief. Koop reveals how this diagnosis prompted him to review his life frankly before and after his apparent death sentence and how he managed to craft a whole new purpose for his life and, more remarkably, to find the love he had sought all his life.

Koop’s tale is a revelation of the potential strength of the human spirit, and the author gives readers an ultimate lesson in using the feared and the unexpected to appreciate the gift of personal relationships and the real pleasures in one’s life every day.

Cancer – It’s a Good Thing I Go It is available on-line in through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
