'Michael can silence a crowd with his story of triumph over adversity. If you need a dash of hope or inspiration in your life right now, start reading.' Catriona Rowntree, bestselling author and host of Getaway

MICHAEL CROSSLAND IS A SURVIVOR

Everything Will Be OK is the awe-inspiring story of Michael's journey from enduring life-threatening cancer as a child, to representing Australia playing baseball in the USA, to becoming an accomplished businessman and a globally in-demand inspirational speaker, starting an orphanage in Haiti and taking national ambassador roles with many organisations including Camp Quality.

When Michael was initially diagnosed as a child, his chances of survival were practically zero and by his second birthday doctors had reluctantly given up hope. Then one day he was offered one remote chance to fight back-placement in an experimental drug program. Against all odds, he survived. He was the only program participant to do so. But he didn't make it through unscathed. To this day he lives with permanent scars-a severely burnt lung, damaged heart, and an intensely sensitive immune system.

In this stirring memoir, Michael shares his story of hardship and challenges that many of us wouldn't even dream of facing, and reveals how a steadfast mindset, genuine compassion, tireless drive, and unwavering optimism helped him to overcome even the strongest obstacles. It is a simple and enduring belief that everything will be OK.
