Book Description

Obstacles and adversity are common to us all. But turning challenges into opportunities and difficulties into adventures is the hallmark of a powerful, fruitful, joyful life.
Like many, you probably won’t believe the story of Care Tuk. Eleven separate bouts with cancer. Eleven separate victories. A near-death car crash at the hands of a drunk driver. A brain bleed that left her speechless and nearly immobile.
Ravaged by the painful side effects of DES (Diethylstilbestrol) – an experimental drug intended to save her life – her body is held together by bolts, screws, titanium plates, and 25-pound mono-filament fishing line. You can’t find a more dramatic, heart-wrenching, raw, honest, and inspiring story than that of Care.
It is a story of hope, a message of strength, and a tale of one amazing lady who overcame the odds and found significance and meaning in it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read November 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a must read, not only for those of us that are cancer survivors but for caregivers and the general reader. Adversity??? when you finish this book you will question how much one person can endure in their life. Not easy to put down once you start to read. It is with her continued faith that she has always come out the winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazingly inspirational book! January 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book will make you look at your own life and realize that if this amazing woman can survive all that she's gone through and still come out smiling, you've got lots to look forward to yourself. Care is just as amazing and inspirational in person as she comes across in this book. For 1 woman to "suffer" as much as she has and still make helping others and supporting causes she does, makes me want to be a better person. I look forward to reading more from her and strongly encourage all, cancer survivor, care giver, and anyone wanting to read something uplifting, I encourage you to read this and share the story with others! We will win the fight against cancer!

I have known Care for many years and have been amazed at how she has handled, through God, each and every one of her surgeries and health problems. Care's book recounts her life of sadness, heartbreak, pain, joy, peace, & love through humor and truth.

This is an amazing read and no more so than the real person. Bought multiple copies before it came out in Kindle and have been able to give it to a friend who is a cancer survivor. Would highly recommend it to anyone. You will laugh, cry, and thank God for health.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story January 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Care's story is incredible, spanning from the frightening and heart breaking to finding the greatest joy out of the hardest of life. Her resolute faith, strong determination, and subtle but clear insights into her own life and place in the Universe lead to an incredibly deep yet easy read. The journey the author undergoes is incredible, and you'll find yourself drawn in by her friendly voice, firm conviction, and absolutely stunning journey through cancer, health issues, and more challenges than most of us can even begin to imagine. Fantastic read, and you'll be pulled in by every single page!
