Overview

In the fast-paced world of technology we live in today, we seldom pay much attention to the journey each of us are on; instead we remain
focused on the goals ahead of us. As we take this journey, friends and
family members walk alongside of us. But sometimes, life gives us an unexpected detour and we are forced to leave that main road and those we love and travel alone to the unexpected. This is what happened to author Karen Kelly Boyce when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her travels that first year chronicle her shock, denial, acceptance, hope and survival. This book is one of laughter and tears, struggle and triumph. A must read for anyone facing a difficult journey…or knows someone who is.

Meet the Author

Karen Kelly Boyce was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. She learned her faith and love of reading at the hands of the Sisters of Mercy. Only a few blocks away from the Barron Library, she spent most of her summer days and weekends lost in the stories and biographies of famous people. The turbulent sixties led her away from her first loves of church, reading, and writing. The only part of her faith that remained was the belief that we were made to help others. That belief led her to graduate as an RN in 1974.
