Please try again later. While reading of her experiences, I found myself sympathizing with her and those closest to her, nearing tears, then abruptly laughing out loud at her witty remarks that give the reader the situation from her perspective. Even if cancer has never touched your life directly, this book will give anyone a different point of view of a disease that is so widespread and feared, and also give the reader hope that someday there will be a cure.

This story helped me gain an insight into someone who I "knew" in college, but didn't really know at the same time. I know that Lindsey will use her experiences to become an even better doctor then the great doctors who cared for her during her cancer treatments, and who still care for her to this day.

I was so enthralled with Lindsey's story of her journey through childhood cancer s that I stayed up reading until 4: She is a gifted storyteller who treats a subject matter that could, in less talented hands, be maudlin or syrupy -- but instead is a refreshing and inspiring tale of the strength and love of family and friends, and the resilence, humor, and courage of a special young woman.

Questions?

For me, when there are pictures, it makes the story come to life. This book is incredible. What a wonderful thing Lindsey has done putting her personal experiences down on paper to share; and not just the experience, but real, raw details about what she endured and how she coped, what lessons she learned and what things she may have done differently This book is going to touch many hearts.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This book really gave me an incredible perspective on what it takes to survive cancer. Lindsey gives a very honest and moving account of the roller coaster ride for the whole family and support group. Through the eyes of a child, she very clearly defines the pain, the success, and the fear that looms around the corner of every benchmark of growing up.

An excellent read -- but an emotional one. Lindsey VanDyke has woven her true-life experiences into no-nonsense yet poignant prose that realistically conveys the thoughts, feelings and observations of a young cancer patient and survivor.
