With stunning recollection and detail, Ms. Foote takes us from her diagnosis of a rare genetic cancer to her present day status as a cancer survivor of more than five years. She offers us practical advice and suggestions about how to talk with doctors, and how to let caregivers and other support people know what we need from them. She shows us how to move beyond that sense of disbelief that comes with a devastating medical diagnosis to a healthy perspective on how to live the rest of one's life.
This is a book you can share with friends and loved ones in the hope you'll never need it, but in the comfort of knowing it's there.
