Overview

I am Val Bower-a daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. I gave birth to three beautiful children and later adopted two more; I also have four stepchildren. I have spent the majority of my adult life working with people who need some kind of help.

Usually a little bit of stress is a good motivator for me. But when you hear the word cancer and the doctor is talking about your child, your mind does not know what to do. When the next doctor tells you he has two weeks-or maybe a month-to live, you pray.

Someone once told me that I didn't have enough faith. I was taught to pray, "God's will be done." I said that prayer for months and then added, "God give me strength to face the future." I kept a journal of the days and weeks of struggles and hardships, based on this mom's feelings. I have no intention of causing pain or anger to anyone; it is all based on my opinion.

My wish is that after reading this, parents will hold their babies more often. Sisters and brothers will say I love you and mean it. I wish for families to realize that tomorrow may not come. Every day should have a memory to hang on to.

    A true story that touched me deeply. The story is about a mom who was told her son had cancer. In hopes of helping others she writes the story, sharing the final six months of her sons life with others. The story captured my heart from the start, and I was unable to put the book down until I finished the last page. To the author I say thank you for sharing your story with us. I also have lost a love one and your words brought peace to my heart and hope to my soul. I highly recommend this book for others to read.
