“Take him home, and enjoy the time that you have left,” the doctors said. Fourteen-year old Christopher was losing his battle with leukemia. Christopher’s Journey is the story of a remarkable young man’s four years of cancer treatments, and the many lives that he touched along the way.

Christopher’s Journey chronicles Chris’s chemotherapy treatments, his irrepressible antics, and finally, his insightful acceptance of his own mortality. In many ways the book is like a pediatric version of Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom because it also alternates between journal entries, reflection, and narrative.

Walk in the shoes of the Ditmars family as they face a childhood devastated by terminal cancer. Share Chris’s unique character and unflappable humor, such as the time he glued a quarter to the floor in his hospital room and kept a tally of the ill-fated attempts to retrieve it, or when he found out he was terminal, and he asked his favorite nurse to hurry up and marry him before it was too late. Follow Christopher’s Journey as it winds its way through the tears and the laughter to a place of peace and hope.
