In the scoreboard of life, Pat Williams has achieved some impressive numbers: he's run 58 marathons, is the father of 19 children, and has lead 23 teams to the NBA playoffs, taking the Philadelphia 76ers and the Orlando Magic to the finals five times. Yet in 2011, Williams added an unwanted statistic: He became one of the millions of people who learned he had cancer.

After a routine checkup, his doctor told Williams he had multiple myeloma, a rare and incurable blood cancer. Calling on his faith and fighting spirit, Pat's mantra became "The mission is remission." After a stem cell treatment and rounds of chemotherapy, he succeeded in the fight of his life: the myeloma can no longer be detected.

Williams shares his story and the six essential healing factors that helped him win his battle. He reveals how he was buoyed by faith, family, and a different kind of defensive team--his doctors. With pragmatic and motivating tips, plus advice from other cancer survivors, Playing to Win will be an empowering resource for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis. Today, in addition to his work with the Orlando Magic, Pat spends many hours on the board of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, responding to emails and taking calls from others affected by cancer. He is a master motivator, change agent, and champion at heart; this is his rallying cry to inspire, educate, and lead others on to victory.
