Soukup to sign books Friday in Brainerd

Posted: January 7, 2014 - 5:08pm

Kathy Soukup and her son, Joel Soukup, of Pine River, authors of “Standing Tall on One Leg” (WestBow Press, 2013), will sign books from 1-3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 10, at Earth and Beyond Books and Gifts, 614 Front St., Brainerd.

Their book journeys through 10 years of their lives as Joel receives a cancer diagnosis at age 16 and a recurrent tumor at age 20. The book is written from Kathy’s perspective as a mother of a child with a cancer diagnosis and from Joel’s perspective as a teenager receiving the diagnosis.

The words of each are woven together throughout the story as they share their journey from receiving the life-threatening diagnosis and subsequent treatments to the surgery where Joel’s entire right leg and pelvis need to be amputated to save his life.
