Great Book Jun 2, 2008
Wonderful book with lots of information about breast cancer. Also a great story on Deanna's life and such a down to earth person. She is just a sweetheart and you will love her. Don't Bet against Me!: Beating the Odds Against Breast Cancer and in Life I also bought the book for a friend that has breast cancer and is going through chemo and she has found the book to be a great comfort.
Heartwarming May 27, 2008
She is a very brave woman who because of who she is will inspire women to get through whatever God puts in front of them. She is someone who has not let being in the public eye to change them into someone they are not. But has stayed true to herself and is doing wonderful things for others.
Inspiring Story - Cancer Survival May 8, 2008
In a word? Inspirational. This lady has faith and talks freely about it. I believe this to be an ideal gift to share with someone facing this disease; they may well be comforted.
Don't bet against me Apr 30, 2008
This is an excellent book about a woman's journey with breast cancer. Deanna Favre is the wife of Brett Favre of the Green Bay Packers. She describes her dealing with breast cancer, the aftermath of it and her struggle to survive and live with a deadly disease. Her and her husband have started a foundation dealing with breast cancer and continue to work tirelessly for the foundation. Reading the book brings forth a variety of emotions and I would recommend this book to everyone especially those who have been touched by breast cancer in some way.
