At first glance one *ahem, I mean me* might be a little nervous about reading this book. Let's just face it, its not exactly high on my list to read a really sad and depressing book about a very serious disease. I've lost two very important people to me to cancer and most of the time thinking about it just leads me to tears and sometimes sends me spiraling down into a pit of self-pity. They never saw me get married, they never met my children. One time my mom and I went to the movies and saw "The Family Stone"....anyone else remember that movie. I do remember the previews very vividly not including anything about cancer, and in fact, being quite funny. We had just recently lost my grandmother, whom I was really close to, to cancer and the mother in the movie ended up getting it, and it was totally not the funny family Christmas movie we had expected. So needless to say I was a little bit nervous about reading this book.
I am very glad I decided to go ahead and review this book. This is an incredibly wonderful and movie story about a mans successful fight against brain cancer and the lives that were changed along the way. An incredible account of family and friendship and putting others before yourself.
i received this book, in partnership with Business to Blogger, in exchange for my review on it. I received no other compensation for a positive review. My opinions are my own.
