  • Thompson shares story of life, love, music and beating cancer

     Steve Thompson could give lessons to whoever said, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

    Just when he was living the good life with success in music and real estate, he was besieged with a deluge of drawbacks, including two bouts of cancer and a disastrous economic downturn that would have caused most people to lose hope… but not Thompson.

    “The victory is in the fight,” the 53-year-old former Michigan resident said.

    Thompson was born in New York City but the family moved to a very rural Michigan farm in 1967.
