Starting at the Finish Line is the autobiography of Matthew S. Newman, a financial services wholesaler and father to three small children, who was diagnosed with grade three astrocytoma (brain cancer) at 39 years old. Matthew's memoir chronicles the journey that he and his entire family took together which got him to a place of clarity, understanding and appreciation. The book's underlying message of why it's important to get your financial planning in order is both inspirational and actionable.
Reading Matthew's book gave me a phenomenal positive attitude. I have a connection on so many levels, including my own personal cancer battle that I have to face. Matt's story helped me, and I highly recommend reading and learning from his experience."
Matt's fight hits me right in the gut. Cancer has taken people I love too. What struck me the most in Matt's story was seeing his admiration for his wife, Rebecca, & the inspiration he drew from his father-in-law and cancer partner, Larry. His new-found ability to lean on the ones he loves."
