"A brave, uplifting, hilarious, and heartbreaking book. One of the best books I've read this year. I loved it." Patricia Gaffney, author of The Saving Graces

Not a book about cancer, but about a person and her family as they deal with life, which includes cancer. Direct, funny, touching and a wonderful read.

I thought this was a wonderful book, full of both pathos and humor. It would be especially poignant for families with young children as you read how she dealt with the anger and outbursts of her son when she was totally debilitated with chemotherapy. Neither sugar-coated nor overly horrific (as if it could be), this is a riveting chronicle of one woman's navigation through the morass that is cancer.
