This book was so honest and touching, how a young mother fought so hard to beat this disease and did it with humor. Her mother is to be commended for pursuing her daughters writings to be published so others can follow in her spirit and fight. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a moving and humorous read.

This book depicts the courageous, sometimes funny, always poignant journey of a beautiful young mother and wife, diagnosed with cervical cancer. She was an amazing and gifted woman who fought her battle with dignity and insight, surrounded and comforted by her family and friends. It is a must read for anyone related to or suffering from cancer, as well as doctors, nurses, and all health care providers.

I bought Cell War Notebooks for altruistic reasons - to help fight cervical cancer and to support Julie's little daughter - but I read it from cover to cover because it was beautifully written. And at the end I cried that such a strong talent was cut short. This is a beautiful book. It's full of life, and hope, and love, and determination. Knowing that Julie lost her fight with cancer was the only sad part.

On January 1, 2009, Julie Forward DeMay began her blog cell war notebooks to document her "journey to healing;" she was battling cancer. On August 10, 2009, Julie died peacefully at home, only two days after her thirty-seventh birthday. This book is the collection of her blog posts.

Each post is given its own chapter, separating the book into short and easy to read segments. The book itself is short and can be read in a single sitting. The chapters are loosely centered around themes, but mostly chronicle Julie's thoughts on any given day. Her writing style is casual and inviting, and the reader is drawn into the personal reflections of a young woman conscripted to fight a battle no one would ever choose for themselves, but which far too many must face nonetheless.

She begins optimistically, determined to defeat this invader in her body and resume her life. She is surrounded by the support of family and friends, and her love for her husband and five-year-old daughter are recurring themes throughout the book. But as treatment after treatment fails to deliver on the promise of good health, her optimism begins to turn to desperation. In one poignant reflection she writes about making dandelion crowns with her daughter and discussing the declining health of their elderly neighbor, all the while thinking about her own declining health. "I need to be here. I refuse to let Luka go through school and breast buds and mean girls and sweaty boys and makeup and deodorant and pimples and SATs and learner's permits and embarrassing fashion trends and impossible decisions without me. I don't think I want to live to be 100 either. I will settle for 75. Or even 70. But I need to be here.
