Melanoma is a subject which interests me greatly as I lost my eldest brother after he was diagnosed with a reoccurrence of a melanoma which had been removed from his back ten years previously.
The sun did this to him; when he was a youngster on the farm he worked bare-backed in the fields. The melanoma came back after being surgically removed, and was found first in his lymph nodes and then in his brain. He died of a heart attack shortly after, so was spared all that Amanda Faye suffered.
I, too, read this book in one sitting, captivated by every word, suffering with Amanda through her almost daily travel to doctors, chemo therapies, searches for better answers, and in the end, the cancer forcing its way to her skin leaving her in chronic pain, misery and disfigurement.
I watched Michael, caught in his own pain, but constantly pouring out love and encouragement to Amanda. I watched Amanda, despite her pain, participating in family and friends celebrations, wearing a smile so others would not know how much she hurt. Though Amanda's journey was beyond painful, both Michael and Amanda--placing their faith in God and continuing to hope for a better day--inspired the reader.
Finding: N-E-D (No Evidence of Disease) was well written and addressed a timely issue: How can I protect myself and loved ones from this disease? Thank you, Michael for your courage in writing this, and your work to spread the warning about Melanoma.
