Clay Rivers, author of “The Raindancer: Finding Joy In The Storm”

The Raindancer: Finding Joy in the Storm is about good friend’s battle with cancer. I know . . . people hear/read the word cancer and all the fun is instantly sucked out of the room. And that’s understandable as cancer is a horrible disease. Couple that with the knowledge that the titular character dies and yes, you might assume the story’s going to be a downer—but it’s not. What makes Rich’s story different is his how he lived despite cancer; and used his faith, optimism, and sense of humor to turn having cancer into an opportunity to help others. And that’s something you don’t read about everyday.
