Aloha,

I hope you are well. Well informed and heart warming review. Cancer is one of those things that some people learn to really cherish life and to forgive. Cancer like other diseases changes a person whole life, especially when it a kid. I understand this person in the book is an adult. ?

I have cut off my hair for kids cancer a few times. Those kids that are fighting so rock!


Be well.

I was touched by this story. I am looking forward to reading this inspirational book and hope more readers will look for it. Cancer has become very common and does not choose age. Thanks for this nice review Izesicle.

This sounds like it had a lot of potential but I think I'm too turned off by the monotony and lack of actual conversation because that really slows down a novel. Thanks for the great review!

Great review. The book sounds very inspirational. Thanks for sharing your views.
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

Great review about a great book. It shows that our families and friends have a role to play in our lives and also that we should be determined in all that we do even during hardships.

Such an inspiring story. I admire Rick's spirit.

Being diagnosed with cancer would ruin most people. Doug Limbrick chose to be strong at an unlikely time.
you have a point there - that courage is a choice.
