One Step at a Time
Reflections on a Battle with Leukemia
by Brian Fraser and Callum Fraser

One Step At A Time is a firsthand account of a young man’s battle with leukemia. In the first half of the book, Brian Fraser describes, with the utmost honesty, what it is like to fight a relentless, punishing disease. He reflects on the horror of his initial diagnosis, the rollercoaster that is cancer treatment, and how his everyday life was flipped upside down. Sadly, Brian passed away midway through the writing process, and was unable to document a handful of major events that took place in the final year of his life. In the second half of the book, Callum Fraser (no relation) takes over in Brian’s absence. Through interviews with over a dozen of the biggest players in Brian’s life, you’ll learn how Brian became the poster child for blood donation in Canada, and how he bravely faced his own mortality. Callum also details Brian’s profound impact at News Talk 580 CFRA, and his passionate love for sports. This book is a testament to Brian’s remarkable legacy.

Don't have any of these at the moment... . .

Born and raised in Brockville, Ontario, Brian Fraser had dreams of becoming a famous radio personality. His big break came when he was promoted to technical producer for News Talk 580 CFRA’s The Morning Rush at the age of 21. But Brian would soon become a household name for a different reason. In March of 2020, months after being diagnosed with leukemia, Brian was thrust into the national spotlight when he advocated for blood donation live on CTV News from his hospital room. The first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic had severely weakened Canadian Blood Services’ supply. After Brian’s call for arms, CBS’ website crashed, and a record number of appointments were booked. He was 26-years-old when he died of acute lymphocytic leukemia.
