A few months back, Doug Warner shared a story of survival from Jack Willis, a former University of Oklahoma professor. Now Willis is ready to share his story first-hand, from cover to cover.

"I guess I thought I was invincible because I had never been sick and never thought about dying," said Willis.

Willis is a member of the one percent club -- men diagnosed with breast cancer.  Willis' cancer is now in remission, but he's taken the journal he kept during his recovery and turned it into a book called Saving Jack - A Man's Struggle with Breast Cancer.

The book went on sale Wednesday morning and is now available online on his Web site.  Willis said the book should be in bookstores by mid-April.
