Adult Nonfiction GV850.F55 A3 1999
Summary: In the 1968 Olympic Winter Games Peggy Fleming not only captured the United States' only gold medal, but a country's collective heart as well. A young woman who embodied both stunning athleticism and magnificent grace, Peggy Fleming reluctantly became an instant celebrity. In the decades that followed, she also triumphed off the ice -- commentating for ABC Sports and nurturing a long-standing marriage while raising two sons. Fleming's toughest challenge of all came in 1998 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Here, she candidly details her courageous physical and emotional battle and explains what compelled her to become an outspoken promoter of breast cancer awareness. A moving memoir that earns the highest marks, The Long Program is both a portrait of a remarkable woman and a collection of inspiring lessons on how each of us can be our best.
