5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this book. 20 Sept. 2012
By Kathy Silver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sue shares her "roller coaster ride" with unflinching honesty and hard-won courage. She rejects the labels "patient" (too passive) and "survivor" (problematic). Instead, she sees herself as a traveler on a unique learning journey that includes coping with medical delays and misdiagnoses. "My main lesson was in finding a balance between living as if I had all the time in the world and living as if I had almost no time at all."

Sue and her editor Christine Overall inspire us with a summary of the care team they put together that enabled Sue to remain in her own home until the very end of her journey. This is strikingly similar to June Callwood's Twelve Weeks in Spring: The Inspiring Story of Margaret and Her Team.

An engrossing and brave memoir.

3.0 out of 5 stars What all the cancer research doesn't say about dying with cancer 27 Nov. 2012
By Heyjude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not just another account of the horrors of cancer and how we were blessed by others or how others were blessed by our courage in some way. But a look into the truth of the journey, how it not only affects us physically but how it changes the core of who we are, our beliefs, our opinions, and our personal values at every level.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am living with it 10 Feb. 2013
By Debbie Ramcharan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I just wanted to read another perspective on living with Breast Cancer. I am also a stage 4 fighting and her story touched me on many ways. I understand what she went through. What a great read. I enjoyed it.
5.0 out of 5 stars Cancer Insight 29 Sept. 2012
By Nancy Chapple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have encountered the roller coaster of fighting cancer that Sue Hendler describes in her book but from a spouse's point of view. So it was with keen interest that I learned of the battle from the patient's side of the struggle. I recognize many similar experiences, but also came face to face with some hard truths that I wish I had known when my husband was in the grips of that disease. Sue's book has a clear and resounding ring of truth and honesty. The format of column length segments made reading the book very comfortable as there were many places to stop and reflect. With a topic as difficult and personal as impending death, I never felt overwhelmed, but continually found Sue's writing informative and frank.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recomment! 17 Nov. 2013
By Dianne - Published on Amazon.com

I would highly recommend this book to anyone, going through stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer. I have just finished reading it, and was able to relate to so much of what went on in this lady's life. I found it very helpful, for myself, who has just been DX with Stage 4 Breast Cancer. RIP Sue.
