Just happened across this quote from Alonzo Mourning's 2008 book "Resilience," which I'd recommend heartily to anyone who could use a little shot of resolve in overcoming a major challenge:

You can wait and hope, or you can go make it happen. Rebounds and rebounding from illness aren't that different.



For the record, Mourning is in the top 50 all-time in his rebounding rate, and surely he's also in the top 50 all-time in kidney transplant recovery. Here Mourning talks about the importance of really wanting to go get that ball.
