This book tells the touching story of her struggle to stay alive during her deployment to Iraq in 2008. It is the true account of a young soldier’s fight with cancer that begins in wartime Iraq, miles away from enemy lines.

NEW YORK, NY, December 05, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Former US Army Veteran, Cancer Survivor & American Author, Brandi Benson releases her debut book – a Memoir, titled “The Enemy Inside Me” which launched on Wednesday, 21 November 2018 and was published by The BRAG Media Company.

Brandi Benson had only recently come into her new life as a soldier in the U.S. Army when she was sent to wartime Iraq, just months after basic training. In this book, she forms a mental picture of the threats she might face, composed of M16s, hand grenades, and land mines. Her first encounter with a dangerous threat comes during an airplane ride to a hospital in Germany and ironically propels her toward an internal battle that leaves her reeling in shock. To Brandi’s surprise, this threat does not appear in the form of men with machine guns, but on a medical scan that reads, Ewing’s Sarcoma. 

On Friday 23 November 2018, during her live international radio interview on The NAKED TALK w/ Alex Okoroji, the Author, Brandi Benson spoke about the personal experiences she had while writing the book and gave behind-the-scenes insights to identify symptoms, as well as tips and life lessons to help people overcome the enemy inside them, no matter what it is or form it takes. The book also contains timestamps and a gripping blow by blow account of events.

Alex Okoroji who is also Creative Director and Publisher of the book, states “This book was written to document Brandi’s journey, as well as create awareness and sensitize people on what Ewing’s Sarcoma really is. I personally had never heard of it before getting Brandi’s manuscript in my hands, and I can tell you – This book is a stunning exploration of life, risks, rebellion, and the fight to stay alive. I’m also glad that the release of the book also celebrates her 10 years as a Cancer Survivor (as she conquered the enemy inside her). In the words of one my radio show listeners, Brandi is a Sur-Thriver.”

The Book is available for sale on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Indie-bound and bookstores around the world. You can also buy at the discounted price on her Official Website
