Michigan musician tells the story of his battle with leukemia
Whenever you talk about the key players in Michigan's music scene, one of the names that inevitably comes up is that of Stewart Francke.
Born in Saginaw, he's made his home, raised his family and built his music career in Metro Detroit.
Writer and critic Jim McFarlin calls Stewart Francke "Detroit's workingman's troubadour," a title he's earned and maintained over decades of making his music.
But today we are going to hear about another journey Stewart Francke has been on, a journey into the world of cancer. A journey that began when he was diagnosed with leukemia that forced Stew and his family and circle of friends to join together to wage a ferocious battle.
He's now telling the story of his cancer battle in his e-book from Untreed Reads. The title says it all, "What Don't Kill Me Just Makes Me Strong."
Stewart Francke joined us today.
