This is the true account of how the Breen family coped with their infant son's cancer. It's written from the perspective of baby Kyle's mom,Donna, supported by journal entries she made as it was happening. This is one brave lady! When you read the story of how she and her husband coped with this horrifying situation, I'm sure you'll be as affected by her (sometimes brutal) honesty as I was. She manages to put the reader by her side as she hears the diagnosis, as they watch other patient-friends die, as she and her husband (and older, healthy daughter)try and live as normally as they could during the respites between out of town treatments. I was surprised how funny this book was! Even so, of all the moms I know who have read this book, there hasn't been one who didn't cry their way through it. Read it to glimpse the real world of childhood cancer. Read it to learn how this amazing family's love and reverance for each other survived unimaginable strain. Read it to learn what's truly important. What cancer taught them. That's cancer's gift.
