"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

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.
