To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I am always looking for new memoirs, so I don't understand why it took this one so long to show up as recommended for me-- but I'm so glad it did. What an inspirational, lovely, well-written book. I'm so glad that Helen DeVries took the time to write about her experience. It seems like almost everyone is getting a cancer diagnosis these days (it *seems* that way, because I'm the same age as Ms. DeVries), so I hope that if/when my turn comes, I will be able to remember how she faced what all she had to face with such courage. Thank you, Helen DeVries, for your wonderful book!
An excellent accounting of a journey through and onto the other side of a devastating cancer diagnosis. The author indeed went through hell, and she makes us feel her heartache and fear every step of the way. She writes beautifully. She and her husband clearly enjoy their travels now. I couldn't help but think that, had she been in the U.S., the medical bills would surely have wiped them out. I'm happy for her continued good health and good life.
This book is so well written. I could not put it down. I have never heard of this type of cancer. My gosh,it is so wonderful the medical technology is wonderful. God bless Helen and her husband and family and friends for their support. Thank God that the doctors have come so far in helping with cures. I too had cancer 13 years ago and am still in remission, thank God. I thank the author for sharing her story.
