Coming off the heels of hard work, and jubilation of losing 150 lbs, nine months ago, I was diagnosed with a very rare sarcoma called:  Epitheliod Hemangioendothelioma.  Only one in four people are diagnosed with this cancer  per year in B.C.  It is incurable and inoperable.  the celebrity out there with this same cancer is Kris Carr, who is writing and publishing some amazing books!

I enjoyed your book because it dealt with the emotions one feels towards EVERYTHING.  Family, friends, coworkers – all well meaning, just don’t get cancer or disease.  The days when you barely want to tallk to anyone, the depression, let alone not wanting to get out of bed…all emotions that you portrayed so honestly. 

I wanted to thank you for this book, as it has inspired me.”  Trace, Vancouver, B.C. CANADA
