You know you’ve hit the big time when you get some love from Chuck Neerland & Mark Oyaas, two of the Twin Cities finest public affairs consultants, and two genuinely great guys.
(From their latest newsletter)
“Finally, let us recommend a book soon to be published. Brian Lucas—journalist and public relations veteran now of public affairs with the University of Minnesota School of Public Health—will be celebrating the publication of “Here Comes the Sun: A Young Family’s Journey Through Cancer” on September 23 at the Open Book, 1011 Washington Avenue South in Minneapolis. The book is the chronicle of a young father’s compassionate and heart-rending experiences as he learns that the love of his life has been diagnosed with a serious form of leukemia. Lucas’ daily journals on his wife Betsy’s CaringBridge site were poignant. They shared the difficulties and courage it takes to battle this disease and offered hope even in some very dark hours. We caught up with Brian and wife Betsy, coincidentally on the 8th anniversary of Betsy’s bone marrow transplant. We finally figured out what this charming and vivacious woman sees in her man; he hits the living crap out of a golf ball. We think it’s fair to say that he writes a pretty darn good book as well and hope to see you on the 23rd. http://www.brianlucasauthor.com.”
Thanks for highlighting the book in your newsletter… And while I wish Betsy had married me for my ability to hit a golf ball, that ability is so fleeting, I hope there’s another reason as well…
