“What Is A Hero?” is the story of Henry’s fight to survive Lymphoma cancer. He shares the diaries he wrote and the illustrations he drew while fighting the deadly disease. Interspersed with the diaries are stories of Henry growing up as a baby boomer, experiencing the sexual and drug revolution, the Vietnam war and the aftermath of World War II. The focus of his memoir is on his mother, who when faced with personal tragedy and financial hardship, managed to keep her family together against all odds. The lessons she taught were invaluable in Henry’s fight with cancer.
