Second Chances is a remarkable memoir that recounts the author’s battle with brain cancer and his extraordinary comeback to the sport he loves.
Once an international hockey player, Matthew Bell’s life was upended when he was diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumour while playing professionally in Germany.
Facing multiple surgeries, the loss of basic human life skills, and a gruelling rehabilitation, he embarked on an arduous journey back to the pitch.
With unwavering determination, support from family and friends, and an elite mentality, Matthew overcame physical and psychological hurdles, returning to the game with sights set on the 2024 Olympics with Ireland.
More than a sports story, Second Chances is an inspiring testament to resilience, dreams, and the human spirit’s ability to triumph over adversity.
In this book, Matthew tells the story of his uplifting journey, and gives you, the reader, the chance to find encouragement to conquer your own formidable obstacles.
