With one phone call, author Erin Michaela Sweeney's life changes forever. She becomes a terminal cancer patient. This memoir recounts the harrowing months after diagnosis during which Sweeney endures chemotherapy rounds administered during hospital stays in the hope of getting into remission. If she makes it that far, then it is a race to find a donor who matches her profile. Will she receive a life-saving marrow transplant in time? And will she live long enough to see her son, Eliott, learn to walk, begin to talk, and have his second birthday? The author's blog posts about treatments, therapies, and home life are uniquely matched with reflective essays culminating in the truth that Every Breath Is a Gift. If you or a loved one faces leukemia or a marrow transplant (or both), this volume will bring comfort through reflections about one woman's cancer journey. It's still good to be alive press will donate $1 profit to Be the Match for each book sold.
