Editorial Reviews

Review


"Like Dr. Winn, the mountains have always beckoned me and been my home. My parents Edgar and Polly Stern, visionary innovators in the ski and hotel industries, had a deep commitment to excellence and a philosophy of unstinting service to our community. Both were fortunate to be among the many friends that received Dr. Winn’s original late night letters. My mother fervently believed that their story “of despair, of love, and ultimately of survival” was an important one that needed to be saved for posterity. Simply, she was passionate that the Winn’s love story needed to be told and shared like a gift. I agree with her unconditionally and wholeheartedly."

"The opportunity to defeat blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma has never been greater. Over the past 67 years, LLS has invested more than $1 billion in blood cancer research. Meaningful treatment advances are being made every day and the research pipeline of exciting new therapies continues to grow. Our goal, to save the lives of blood cancer patients not someday, but today, is within reach. Night Reflections is a wonderful and moving true story of one family’s journey of survival that inspires us all to achieve that goal."
—Louis J. DeGennaro, Ph.D.
President and Chief Executive Officer
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS)

As a non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma survivor who underwent six rounds of chemotherapy and five weeks of daily radiation therapy, I am all too familiar with the devastating impact of a blood cancer. I know that during the darkest of times people need encouragement and inspiration – and I believe that Night Reflections does both astonishingly well. Dr. Winn’s story is remarkable in its telling. It is truly an uplifting and moving story of friendship, love and survival.

"Illness has an insidious way of stripping one of their dignity. Importantly, Night Reflections serves as an invaluable guide for any individual or family who have loved ones going through a life-threatening crisis or chronic illness. Dr. Winn stirringly and poignantly shares the intimate and terrifying roller-coaster ride of highs and lows. In the process, his beloved wife Nancy’s illness strips him to his very core in such a way that is both ennobling and empowering. Ultimately, instead of being diminished by the experience, all are strengthened."
—Corinne O’Kelly

“Cancer may invade one person’s body, but it attacks the entire family. I know this from personal experience as a survivor of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, who relied on faith, hope, and the love of family and friends to battle this unrelenting opponent. Dr. Winn’s incredibly moving story of love, friendship, and survival is absolutely stunning, candid, and uplifting. Night Reflections is powerful beyond words.”

“Dr. Winn’s story is remarkably open, unguarded and intimate. I believe that almost any physician, staff member, patient, patient family member or friend willcome away with new insights and understanding after reading this moving memoir.”
—Frederick R. Appelbaum, MD
Director, Clinical Research Division, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
