Josh Bidwell shares his incredible story



Some of you probably know punter Pro Bowl Josh Bidwell is a survivor of a difficult bout with testicular cancer and very grounded in his faith.

He doesn't talk much about his battle with the disease, but knowing he could help others by sharing, he agreed to write a book that tells his tale. It's called When It's Fourth and Long. Bidwell spoke to me this week from his offseason home in Oregon about the book and his story. There's a transcript of that chat in today's newspaper, which you can access here.

If you're interested in the details of his battle with cancer, Josh and wife, Bethany, invited us into their home a couple years ago to share their story. I wrote about it in this 2005 story.

The book is available in bookstores as well as online. The list price is $12.99, though has it a bit cheaper. I have a copy at home that I intend to read. It's a great story from a great guy.
