My Name is Not Cancer provides an inspiring insight into dealing with chronic illness with authenticity and raw emotion. It uncovered many feelings of my own experience as a person dealing with chronic illness, who strives to live life not as a victim but as unencumbered by the reality of illness as possible. Kudos to Mr. Beck for having the ability to reveal very human feelings mixed with faith, fortitude, and resilience, while living in the reality of our everyday world. - My Name is Joanne Metoyer

About the Author
So who am I? I can tell you what I’ve done: I’ve been a cabinetmaker, dental technician, and supervisor for a Public Works facility. But who am I really? In my search to know this I can tell you I attained three college degrees, culminating with a Master of Divinity from Northern Seminary. But, disease cares little about these things. Instead, I offer that I am just a Guy in the act of living! I have been blessed by my wife Liz of 27 years and counting and our son Dan. Together we live in Naperville, IL, and share our lives with many dear friends.
