Editorial Reviews

"I wish I had read this before I lost my mom a few years ago and a dear friend soon after, both to cancer. Ty Alexander takes you through every phase, from diagnosis to despair to a place of gratitude. Ty's book is an essential companion for your journey through the loss of a loved one." - Nina Lesowitz, author of Living Life as a Thank You
