"Meyer's animated account of her successful efforts exemplifies how one woman imbued with infectious zeal can make a difference."—Booklist"Heartbreaking, inspiring, and empowering. You'll be left feeling you can make a difference in the world."—J. R. Wagner, author of The Never Chronicles series"At its core, The Longest Mile is a convincing memoir with vivid storytelling and an uplifting (and often humorous) message that left me inspired and ready to take action myself."—Heather Schugar, PhD, Associate Professor of Literacy, West Chester University of Pennsylvania"In a simple and honest voice, Christine Meyer, MD, recounts her journey in developing a fierce and effective fundraising platform for cancer research and support for local cancer-affected families. Her story will make you cry, laugh, and sit in awe of what she was able to accomplish. At its center, The Longest Mile reveals what I now come to believe is the most potent tool in fundraising: the power of human connection. When I turned over the last page, I was left moved, inspired, and ready to do more."—Bhavna Shyamalan, PhD, co-founder and vice president, M. Night Shyamalan Foundation
