You Cannot Fail: You Are the Hero of Your Own Story — an inspirational book of personal reflections by Boomer Esiason Foundation Volunteer Jerry Cahill — now is available for sale on Amazon.com.
Fifty-five-year-old Cahill, who has cystic fibrosis and in April underwent a double-lung transplant, is a popular and recognizable figure in the CF community.
In addition to serving as the Foundation’s point person for programs providing direct support to people with CF and their families, Cahill has undertaken his own personal campaign to educate and inspire the community.
"You Cannot Fail" has become Cahill’s personal mantra, and the You Cannot Fail book includes 40 pages of quotations, photographs and essays that illustrate how he lives that mantra day in and day out.
The book is one component of a broader You Cannot Fail program of the Boomer Esiason Foundation. Launched in 2011 in support of the cystic fibrosis community and others coping with serious illness, the You Cannot Fail mantra has universal appeal. At some point in our lives, all of us face a life-changing decision or devastating situation … or, less dramatically, an unusually difficult day. You Cannot Fail empowers us to face those challenges with strength and grace, reminding us that no matter what the outcome, we are heroes. And we cannot fail.
The Foundation plans to expand the You Cannot Fail merchandise offered on Amazon in the coming months. In the meantime, the book and other merchandise — including t-shirts, wristbands and paperweights — are available from the Foundation's online store.
Sales of the book and merchandise support a new You Cannot Fail scholarship and other programs benefiting the cystic fibrosis community.
