Publisher's Description

Chris Spielman was a high school and Ohio State football legend and a four-time Pro Bowl linebacker, but he didn't tackle his toughest opponent until his playing career was almost over. In 1998 his wife Stefanie was diagnosed with breast cancer, and so began an 11-year journey that brought joy and suffering to the Spielmans, as well as hope and inspiration to thousands of others. In That's Why I'm Here, Spielman traces his storied career, recalls his courtship of Stefanie Belcher, cherishes the growth of their four children and invokes the deep spiritual faith that gave their family wisdom and comfort in times of struggle. Though there are plenty of on-the-field tales in the book, it's not just for football fans. It's for people whose lives have been touched by cancer, for people whose own faith has wavered, for people who want to meet a woman of tremendous beauty, grace and strength. Though Stefanie passed away on Nov. 19, 2009, her memory and inspiration live on. With laughter and tears, joy and heartbreak, this book lets you know her spirit is still here.

Author Bio

Chris Spielman, who was the first high school athlete to appear on a Wheaties box, became a two-time All-American for the Ohio State Buckeyes and remains one of the most popular players in school history. He went on to play eight seasons for the Detroit Lions in the NFL, earning a Pro-Bowl selection four times. When his wife Stefanie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998, Chris took a year off to be with her, and the two later created the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research. He currently hosts a daily sports radio show in Columbus, Ohio, and is well known as a college football analyst for ESPN.

Bruce Hooley lives in Plain City, Ohio, with his wife, Sheri, and their daughters, Katie, Rachel, and Lexee. He and Chris have been friends since 2004 and work together at ESPN.

    What an inspiring story! Chris Spielman explains what has happened in his life thus far in this very open and loving book. The author is a very well known football player but not many know about his personal life and the tragedy of his wife Stefanie's death from cancer. This book follows Chris's football journey and their journey together through the cancer.

    This book is easy to read and flows well. There is a lot of football in it but also spiritual insight and encouragement for those going through the cancer battle. You can feel the love in the husband and wife relationship and will be encouraged by it. I gave this book 5/5 stars because I thought it was well written and the author did very well at explaining the real journey couples go through when dealing with cancer.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
