Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Nathalie Jacob thought she was in amazing health. She was shocked when doctors told her otherwise. Nathalie had a brain tumor the size of a golf ball. The doctors needed to operate.
 
Nathalie thought it would be an easy recovery. Her boss assumed she would be back in three weeks. Instead, the physical and mental side effects of the surgery would haunt her for years. When she woke up in the hospital, Nathalie was partially blind. She couldn't read or write. The only number she recognized was eight.
 
Despite these enormous challenges, Nathalie persevered. She found the humor in her situation and delighted in rediscovering the joys of simple tasks and experiences. Now, she shares these with you. Her husband writes a chapter directed to caregivers.
 
While Nathalie's journey was long and arduous--and it's still not over--she shows you the hope that inspired her to keep moving forward.

About the Author

Nathalie Jacob was raised in Colombia, went to high school in France, and later moved to the United States. She is trilingual in English, Spanish, and French.
 
Nathalie studied business administration at the Universidad de los Andes in Colombia and received her master's in business administration from IE Business School in Spain. She spent ten years working in high-level marketing jobs for Fortune 500 companies in five different countries. In her spare time, she enjoyed sailing and won several national championships.
 
The aftereffects of a brain surgery left Nathalie disabled and unable to work. She has done three voluntary jobs since, until the birth of her first child. She is now focusing on being the best mother she can be to her baby daughter, Nicole.
