“Go, Sam, Go” is the story of Sam Neace’s 500-mile walk from his hometown of Hazard, Kentucky to Oprah Winfrey’s studio in Chicago, Illinois. In September of 2009 and just eighteen months removed from chemotherapy, Sam, an author, set out across the Kentucky coalfields on a mission to make good on his second chance at life. He had two goals for his trip: to raise money for the American Cancer Society and to hand deliver copies of his writings to Oprah. Along the way, Sam braved the elements, voracious pets, local celebrities, and the entire state of Indiana to finally arrive at 1058 West Washington Boulevard in downtown Chicago. This book, which includes the journal Sam kept during his battle with cancer, chronicles not just a journey on foot from Kentucky mountains to Chicago sidewalks, but also a journey through adversity and disease to find out just what can happen when we reach a point in life where there’s no choice left but to go meet Oprah, if she will meet him.
