The final chapter.

09.13.15 Posted in Blog Updates by

Steve Webster was the most exceptional human being I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. And his passing has honestly caused me more tears than anything I’ve experienced in my life. I love him and I miss him. Steve’s story changed the way I live my life.

He is my hero.

My name is Jaime. I am a ghostwriter. And I was honoured with the task of helping Steve put his amazing story together, into a book. It was a big job for me and Steve and our amazing editor, Christine. A job that was interrupted by hospital stays and set backs of all sorts. But we always kept going. Steve was not one to leave something unfinished.

After two years of interviews, coffee meetings, and back and forth edits, the book was complete. And even though I helped him put the words together, Nine Lives Plus One is all Steve.

I spent a great deal of time in Steve’s head. At times it was a scary place. Sometimes it was a sad place. But it was always so full of love. Love for his family and friends and his life.

I know that Steve would want us to keep going with Nine Lives Plus One, so that’s what we’re doing. His wife Sandra and I are going to add a new section to the memoir to finish telling his story. And we are going to work to put this book in front of as many people as we possibly can, because people need to read this story. Everyone needs to read this story.

All proceeds from sales of the book will be going to Young Adult Cancer, the Terry Fox Foundation, and to his son Sam’s education fund.

Please help us share this incredible memoir about the true strength of the human spirit.

Life is too short to spend at war with yourself.

Practice acceptance and forgiveness.  Letting go of yesterday’s troubles is your first step towards happiness today.

Sometimes we don’t forgive people because they deserve it.  We forgive them because they need it, because we need it, and because we cannot let go and move forward without it.

I†’s not hurting anyone else but me..let it go…(princess:)oil

‘The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened”- JFK

“Human rights are not only violated by terrorism, repression or assassination, but also by unfair economic

structures that creates huge inequalities.” – Pope Francis. 

I used  quotes by other people as today as they just fit better then anything I could think of right now. (both of their quotes would on any subject:)

I believe that human rights  and  economic disparity worldwide will effect mypope families and my rights if we don’t look at the macro level

and participate in the larger conversation.

It’s better to die fighting for freedom than to live life in chains.

On the other side of fear lies freedom and that is why we must acknowledge, confront and dismiss 

the ghosts that haunt us and limit us.

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it.” – Steve Jobs

 Focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: Write a paragraph about your best qualities.

Now edit and bring it down to one sentence . Try it …. It is a lot harder then you think. Just like trying to progress in life, it is hard to get to the core, you need to create an uncluttered path so  you can walk  faster and further. 

 Whisper in my head

To they own self be true…

“Inspirational and eloquent ….. “

“I started this book and couldn’t put it down. Steve writes just like he lives, with real honesty and bravery. He isn’t afraid to share his inner demons and what he has learned from previous mistakes. His life has been anything but boring, and he has soaked up every single experience. The result is a great read that is funny at times, heart-breaking at others, and ultimately inspirational.”
Heather N
“I send you a thousand thank you’s for all the F*ck Off’s you said under your breath and out loud at work, for your beautiful love story, and especially for helping me face Mom and Dads own journeys from a different perspective after meeting you!” – Elaine C
Elaine
Since cancer enveloped Steve Webster’s life after resurrecting its head 4 times he has much concern about getting older.
Against all the odd he has fathered 2 children, undergone open heart surgery, spent months of his life in a medically induced coma.
Its a story of survival, strength, perseverance, hope, love and a very poignant journey
