Cancer May Have Taken Her Life, But Not Her Legacy

This is a story about the biggest things in life, which is ironic because it ends with a death.

When Amy Nappa was unexpectedly diagnosed with Stage IV-B uterine cancer, her life and that of her husband's, Mike, changed forever. But they weren't the only ones whose lives were touched by Amy's courageous journey into the waiting arms of her loving Savior.

What started out as a private Facebook group intended to keep family and close friends apprised of Amy's medical condition grew to include hundreds, with thousands more reading publicly about Amy daily on social media. And now, Mike wants to share those poignant posts with you, so you can come to know the amazing woman he adored for 30 years (and still does).

So, this is Amy's story, mostly in her own words. It's a love story, a loss story, but most of all it's a life story. You'll quickly discover that Amy's life, especially the way she lived the end of it, will inspire your own.

About the Author

Amy & Mike Nappa went to a Mimi’s Café in California for their first date, way back in their college days. They got engaged ten (!) days later, and married just a few months after that. Thirty years later, Mike and Amy had their last date in a hospice room on the top floor of a Colorado hospital.
Yes, they held hands.
And yes, Mike kissed her goodnight.
