Let’s get started!  Chapter 12!


So, I figured for this last chapter, I’d do this a little differently.  I marked several of my favorite passages in this chapter but I’m really interested in hearing from you.  This chapter had so much in it…relationships, fear of recurrence, fear of stage IV, marriage, reconciling our vision of ourselves, and much more.  What resonated with you?  What would your survivorship chapter include?

And we’re done!  I’d love to hear what you thought of this book in general.  Please share your comments below and start getting excited for our video chat book club discussion!  When the date and time are announced, and the sign up available, we’ll let you know!
