A realistic view of a cancer survivor. I have been surrounded by loved ones with cancer and I felt empowered by this memoir. I felt there was a silver lining in such a bleak situation. That would be the love that surrounds.

I enjoyed reading about Gill's journey with breast cancer, as each journey is deeply personal. I am glad that her diagnosis and treatment taught her that life is random and that all the planning and "clean living" we do cannot protect us from cancer. I would not recommend this book to someone as she goes through breast cancer treatment, but it is a good read after-the-fact about lessons learned and how having cancer can change your priorities.
