Janice Post-White was an oncology nurse who thought she knew what life with cancer was about - until her four-year-old son was diagnosed with leukemia. While he drew pictures to process his emotions, she buried her feelings and threw herself into managing a dual role as a medical professional and mother.
Her memoir shares her son's perspective as a young cancer patient and teen survivor and explores her own personal and professional insights on survivorship, resilience, healing and what facing death can teach us about living.
""What a beautiful, poetic and honest account of a parent's greatest fear―facing the loss of a child to a serious illness. This book will move you, enlighten you, and ultimately inspire you. For what is a brush with death, if not a deeper call to life?""―Henry Emmons, MD, author of The Chemistry of Joy and The Chemistry of Calm."
