Shelly White, a small-town girl from Georgia, has her life forever changed when she is diagnosed with cancer at the age of 8. Her miraculous recovery from a malignant tumor at St. Theresa’s Children’s Hospital in Atlanta, and watching her roommate die, puts her on a path to wipe out cancer in her lifetime so no one else has to suffer.
Her only true love as she grows up is the children she now calls her patients, until a chance meeting with a local advertising executive, Nick Harris, blossoms. With a savvy marketing campaign, together they find out there is one man who may have the formula to eradicate the disease.
But time is running out. The elderly man is in hiding as he knows his life is in danger. His secret could put thousands of people out of work and destroy the riches of many pharmaceutical companies. Shelly and Nick will need to go all the way to the top for favors if they are ever to find the elderly man—and the cure for cancer.
