Chance to have your name on limited edition volume of Steve Prescott's autobiography
Updated 11:56am Thursday 5th June 2014 in Sport
READERS are being offered the chance to get their name embossed on a limited edition copy of Steve Prescott's autobiography - One in a Million.
The book will go into print in August 2014 but people can pre-order their copy today for £30 (including delivery).
The first 500 people responding to the link on www.spfund.co.uk will get their names embossed on that edition.
The book itself will be launched at Wembley on Challenge Cup Final day on August 23.
One in a Million is a tale of how the former St Helens, Hull, Wakefield, Great Britain and Ireland rugby league full back fought back after being diagnosed with cancer and given months to live.
Further examinations revealed that Steve had the rare form of the disease – pseudomyxoma peritonei.
He fought that disease with every fibre of his being.
Steve wanted the world to know his story and began writing his autobiography with the help of the Star’s senior sports writer Mike Critchley in 2007 and it was completed shortly before his passing in November 2013.
Linzi takes up the story for an incredibly moving closing two chapters.
One In A Million is the story of Steve’s life, from being one full of colour as a top level rugby league player, to a heart-rending tale of battling cancer.
