( ) Cancer is a bitch, plain and simple. And the author is unfortunate enough to have experienced the struggle with both her own body and many of those she loves. However, she’s lucky in that an experimental treatment cured a rare, stage 4 melanoma she had been enduring.
Throughout this time, she chronicles what it is like to still have to balance a career, friends, and family with her treatment. She analyzes discussions she has with those close to her in similar situations, and how she feels blessed to have pulled through.
It’s good writing about a somewhat taboo, depressing topic. The only gripe I have is that there are too many characters introduced for me to follow. I got a little lost, even though the main story was the same.
