"Sadly, death is sometimes the best teacher we ever get about living. This book connects death to life and prompts--no, compels--us to live every moment to the fullest."
--Russell Friedman, Executive Director of the Grief Recovery Institute

"I applaud Nick Trujillo for his courage to share the story of his love for his wife who sadly lost her battle with cancer. It is both touching and inspiring."
--Fran Drescher, President and Visionary of the Cancer Schmancer Movement, Uterine Cancer Survivor

Leah Vande Berg had experienced abdominal cramps and assumed that she just had a minor gastrointestinal problem. But when she and her husband Nick Trujillo went to the hospital, they learned that Leah had Stage IV ovarian cancer and might have months to live. Their world would never be the same.

This book tells the story of cancer, death and grief from the perspectives of a cancer victim and her surviving husband. It may be the most open and honest book about cancer, death, and grief. The authors tell their stories using distinct voices and offer different perspectives on life, love, careers, religion, illness, and death.
