My name is Tom Foley and am the Executive Associate Dean of the Martin J. Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University. I was also a high school and college lacrosse player. One of my high school teammates is the present Hall of Fame coach at Syracuse University, John Desko. Obviously you can see that I would have a strong interest in your character, Mitch Rapp.
I am writing to thank you.
Last summer, I was diagnosed with a low grade B-Cell folicular lymphoma (stage IV.) I started reading your novels in July of 2012 as I started my treatments. I have one more novel to go. I want to thank you for helping get through my chemo and the additional consolidation therapy that I have just finished. I am in remission and am feeling pretty good. My disease is treatable, but not curable, but we are doing alright!
Your novels have been wonderful, they helped me when I was sitting, getting my hours worth of chemo, they helped me to unwind before the end of the day and they helped me fight back as I go to the gym and spend time on the elliptical machine. Thank you for your Mitt Rapp series, I have truly enjoyed them!
Thank you for helping me get through these difficult times.
All the best,
