Traveling a Rocky Road with Love, Faith, and Guts (paperback)

This is a tale of strength in the face of adversity. How one woman survived psychological and physical blows to her psyche and health to overcome them with courage and resilience. Sylvia faced many challenges in her life, from childhood trauma, to difficult times in her marriage, then with personal health. It was heartbreaking to learn that both received news, on the same day, that each one of them faced a cancer diagnosis--her husband prostate cancer and Sylvia's bladder cancer. Sylvia was already taking care of her husband with COPD and now prostate cancer, facing bladder cancer herself, and having to deal with her full-time, job and the only wage earner in the family.

This amazing book has it all, from terrible news to lighter humor. It all happened when a large raccoon was found on their exercycle in the morning room. He was sitting on the bike with his hands on the handle bars trying to figure out how to work it. This book is a valuable addition to those suffering from cancer and at the same time for those who have their health. Many times in life we agonize over the small dramas and forget the most important thing: that we're here on earth to enjoy life as best as we can and to forgo the insignificant events in our lives. This book teaches just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proof that if one keeps going no matter the odds things will work out 2 April 2012
By Dr. Tom Rezner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the story of a medical marvel that faced odds worse than winning the lottery. Determination and hard work beat 3 major illness and keep the author going even today fighting a 4th. Her struggle to support a family and care for a husband who had failed to support her efforts shows what character is made of. By hanging tough and fighting through adversity, she has achieved and gone from a mother with 2 kids going to college to being a Full Professor and talented author. By being who she is, she has found love and happiness and shares her blessings with others thru her writing and donation of book proceeds to the American Bladder Cancer Society. A Great Book-Buy It. I did.
