Review

"Sona shares her personal cancer experience and her VISION to create something much bigger than just one family-a powerful vision that has become one of the biggest, most powerful forces of good in the cancer world today! Amazing person, awesome vision, and beautiful story! Thank you Sona for all you do!!"—Jonny Imerman, Imerman Angels 1-on-1 Cancer Support




"There is an old saying in medicine: 'The secret of patient care is in caring for the patient.' That's a way of saying that love and compassion help people heal. This is what CaringBridge stands for, and it's what makes our world a better, kinder place."—Larry Dossey, MD, author of the Healing Words and Prayer Is Good Medicine

"I connected immediately with HOPE CONQUERS ALL because of my daughter's leukemia diagnosis at age 12. We used the CaringBridge website mentioned in this book, and I can vouch for it's benefits. Not only did CaringBridge bring encouragement to my daughter and our family during the long months she was hospitalized, but it was also a way to connect with concerned friends and family. This collection of stories would be a great gift to someone in a situation where health issues are overwhelming."—Karla Blackwood

"CaringBridge" is a website started by Sona Mehring about 15 years ago. It is home to blogs by people who are facing medical issues and use their site to update friends and family on their on-going treatments. I discovered the site about six years ago when my beloved sister-in-law was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer. Her blog was as wonderful and inspirational as she was, and ended at her death three years ago. Since discovering the CaringBridge website, I've known a few other people who have chronicled their "battles" with disease on its pages.

Mehring has put together a shortish book which uses some of the Caringbridge stories. There are people with illnesses, people who have been injured in accidents, and people who've found inspiration in other's pages. The stories mostly have happy endings, or as "happy" as someone who's been badly injured can have. A few have ended in the death of the person in the pages, but not many. The last story was written by a woman with pancreatic cancer who died soon after completing her story. Her CaringBridge blog gives a bit about those who loved her and how they observed her death.

The book is as well written as the individual blogs are. Many stress the religious side of illness and death. The stories are as personal and moving as you'd expect them to be. The takeaway from almost every single one of them is that disease and accidents are horribly...random. Mehring's book is an interesting look at all sections of society when that randomness in life happens.

Format: Hardcover
Gripping stories, but not always easy to read. These are real people facing real challenges, so be prepared for some real gut twisting as they share their raw emotions. Amazing how people are able to find hope in their darkest hours. Worth the time.
