Whether you are a patient, a caregiver, or a family member, the author has written this book with the hope that you will gain knowledge and strength from understanding how she, her family, and her mother made this journey together.
The Journey Home is the true story of a woman who is full of life and in the prime of life and then suddenly and without warning is diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer. The narrative unfolds as she makes the difficult transition from vibrant life to end-of-life. This story is about walking alongside someone you love and providing the support and care they need to find peace and comfort with life before death and with death itself. With no real hope given at diagnosis, the book shows the reader through the eyes of a patient and a family.
The author prays that you find her book helpful, even if you take away only one idea. She hopes that this book touches your soul as it touched hers to share it with you.
