Item Description...

As a hospice nurse Marilyn Azevedo had seen how disease could ravage a person's body and spirit, and how it could cripple friends and family with grief. She knew about life and death. Yet, nothing could prepare her for the journey she would face when her youngest child, Andy, was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 16.

In this powerful memoir, readers share Azevedo's painful journey-from the days when she felt strong and powerful, to the days she just wanted to stay in bed and pull the covers over her head. But Azevedo's battle is more than a fight for her son's life as she takes on the health insurance bureaucracy and lobbies Congress to reform inequities. Sadly, reform comes too late to save Andy, but their efforts result in legislation preventing insurance companies from denying certain types of medical care.

Powerful story! HMO's would not want this book published!  Apr 22, 2001
A powerful gripping account of a battle for life againt a money hungry business and a all consuming cancer. A family togehter faces the greatest challenge anyone could face. READ this book. Give it to someone with cancer! Pray this never happens to someone you love, and if it does realize you can do something!
 
A gift from Azevedo  Mar 21, 2001
When trajedy strikes, many people draw deeper into themselves. A few rare individuals will allow their emotion to be given as a gift to others in similar turmoil. In clear and blazingly honest language, Marilyn Azevedo shares her experiences as a way of making others feel less alone. Anyone who has suffered loss will benefit from this book, as well as anyone who has ever fought a valiant fight against that which can't be overpowered.

This is a beautifully written and worthwhile book, hearbreaking and uplifting in equal measures.

 
She did defend Andy!!  Mar 20, 2001
This well written thought provocating book is written beautifully from the heart. Not only is it a book about extreme unimaginable loss but is also a story of strength and love under undue circumstances. Marilyn Azevedo epitomizes a mothers unconditional love for her child and the length this mother went to keep him living among us. She articiulates succintly the battles patients, families, health care providers are raging with this unjust disease CANCER. Kudoos to her in her first literary masterpiece. My only regret is that Andy cannot share in this incredible achievement.
