Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased this book when it was first released and have referred back to it many times during my Mother's journey with Pancreatic Cancer. The book was a great read at first. Since my first time reading it, it has helped me understand so much and helped me be a better person during this time. Thankfully, my Mother is still with us after 4.5 years of battling this disease but it has taken it's toll on her. She has just entered hospice so I came looking for this book to get a copy for other family members to read. I could not give a higher recommendation for this book - life lessons that relate to everyone at every time in their life.
