This book touched me in so many ways. I lost a loved one less than a year ago to ALS, and finally got the courage to read this book. It was so uplifting and hopefully - something that I find is never lacking in ALS patients. They are a very brave bunch... I really enjoyed that this book focused more on what she did after her diagnosis than on the day to day ailments of ALS, which would have made for a depressing read. I would recommend that anyone with a terminal illness (or anyone that has a loved one with a terminal illness) read this... It is so very inspiring and shows that we can still have strength in trying times.
This was a book that I could not put down. To me it is an act of bravery. Despite this woman's illness she didn't sit and have pity on herself. Instead she did the opposite by trying to help others with the same illness to find a cure. It is a fantastic book.
This book was excellent! It's about a young woman just diagnosed with ALS and how her life changed dramatically. While it was sad, I also thought it was encouraging to read about how brave she was. Definitely worth reading!
A touching story with the forward done by Katie Couric. She was a friend of the author and it is her stroy of dealing with ALS. Very well done and informative.
Very touching and exremely moving I wept at the end----An unbeleivable account of ALS
