My Butterfly Cancer is a memoir by Marguerite “Markie” Madden. It chronicles her life prior to, during, and immediately following her battle with leukemia. What I enjoy most about this book is that it flows like a conversation. Mrs. Madden is a writer friend of mine with whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and conversing. As I read her book, I felt like she was talking to me.
Another thing I appreciate about Mrs. Madden’s book is the optimism. She describes her bout with a horrible, debilitating disease with a sanguine attitude. While informative, her story is encouraging and hopeful.
Not only does the story delve into Mrs. Madden’s battle with cancer, it also describes how the aftermath of the disease led her into a full-time career as a writer. The memoir concludes with useful information about the publishing process.
If you are looking for a book of encouragement and insightful advice, I urge you to pick up a copy of Markie Madden’s My Butterfly Cancer. You can find purchasing information here. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
This is a very frank and candid account of how she suffered, not only from her cancer but other things as well. It made me feel like I was there with her every step of the way. It's very inspiring to learn of what she had to go through, but how she got through it all with such a positive attitude.
I recommend this book for absolutely anybody to read!
Markie Madden is incredibly brave, sharing with us the details of her frightening journey and her determination not to let that journey be her defining moment. She shares her deepest emotions with us and then not only tells how how cancer lead to her becoming a writer, but gives the ins and outs of this process to help others find their way should they so choose.
What I especially liked about My Butterfly Cancer is that Ms. Madden is able to break down the complicated medical information in a way that the layman can understand. Cancer is a evil illness that has touched everyone in some way or another and having Ms Madden's explanation's of her treatment can help us to better understand the frightening treatment process. I thank Ms. Madden for sharing her story with us.
Kudos go to Markie. She is a true survivor.
I recommend this book to all with or without cancer.
