Overview

In 2003 I met an amazing Filipino woman named Fe who I soon fell deeply in love with. Even though we came from very different backgrounds (her from a small fishing village in the Pacific and myself the offspring of middle-class business owners in Kentucky) we still found much in common with each other.

The sky came crashing down upon us in 2009, however, when Fe, at just forty years old, was diagnosed with lung cancer. For 3 months I tended to her day and night, taking her to chemo treatments, staying up all hours of the night to give her medication, staying with her in the hospital, driving her wherever she needed to go, and eventually sitting alone in an ICU waiting room in West LA at 2am one night when the doctors came to tell me she had passed away.

In this book I recount many of our greatest adventures and most tragic experiences together. I hope people can find inspiration in this story as I try to share some of the lessons I learned on our unforgettable journey.
