From the author…

“A close friend of mine during her fight against cancer kept her will to fight alive just thinking about her two young children and what her absence from their life could do to them.” This book is a tribute to her and hundreds of others who’ve been in a similar situation.

The incredible essence of motherhood that encompasses selflessness, rare grit, unconditional love and caring has remained unparalleled and always will be.

“The true selflessness of being a mother came to light, when I lay in my hospital bed waiting to deliver my second baby and realized that the focus of my thoughts was not on the traumatic experience about to begin but rather on the well being of my four year old at home while her father and grand mothers stood by my side.”
