Autobiography and testament to the author's faith in God Oct 8, 2007
As someone who is also battling Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC), I was reluctant to read this book when I learned that the author passed away in April 2006 of IBC. However it helped me to see how someone with metastatic breast cancer can live each day fully and with joy, relying on the support of family and friends, along with a complete trust in God.
The book is comprised mainly of e-mail updates that the author sent to her family and friends over the course of 2 years. It is a very detailed and personal account of her journey fighting breast cancer with numerous chemotherapy treatments. At times it was difficult for me to read, knowing that the author passed away at the age of 44, less than one year after completing the book. But as the author would frequently close her e-mails by saying "May I be a blessing to you in each word I write today", I can say that she has been to me.
Miracles in the making! Mar 27, 2006
I've purchased a number of copies of this GREAT book! I'm donating copies and putting them in the waiting rooms at doctor's offices! This book is not just for those with cancer, but for anyone that may be experiencing one of life's trials! It proves that, by focusing on something Other than the trial, we are more than conquerors! Writing a book is difficult enough, but to do so while battling for her life....wow! Terri and her family are being used as a Light, showing many that there truly is HOPE!
Personal and Real; Has a Decidedly Positive Spin Mar 16, 2006
This book is remarkable because it is so incredibly personal. Terri tells the true story of her life and specifically her experiences while battling breast cancer. It is obvious when reading the book that Terri is a REAL person. She sheds the walls of privacy in hope that the telling of her story will help others. Yes, this book has a specific religious tone, as Terri reconciles most everything to her religious beliefs. However, the reader need only make a small jump to make application to their own beliefs, and any reader can understand the benefits of faith, friends, and family when faced with the challenges described in the book. Her positive spirit and determination to help others is an inspiration to a wide audience.
