The reality of cancer treatment.

A very realistic look at an ugly subject.
I requested this book in exchange for my honest review because my family is experiencing a similar situation.
My brother had a port put in but unfortunately it didn't shrink as much as expected so the colostomy surgery is next.
It's hard to watch someone you love be in such incredible pain they don't have any fight left in them.
I'm recommending this book to everyone out there experiencing this hell.
I think listening to this very personal raw account will inspire others like my brother to keep going even when it feels impossible.
This book is one man's heartbreaking journey through the emotional process of fighting cancer and the side effects of treatment.
The narrators performance was poignant in conveying the authors trials and tribulations.
From the compassionate and caring professionals he encounters throughout his treatment to the unsympathetic battles with the health insurance system.
Surviving cancer should not depend on how much money 💰 you have in the bank.
Unfortunately for so many it does.
I wish this author a very successful recovery.
I think documenting and sharing his journey is courageous and inspirational.

Cancer is awful.

SO, after downloading this book, it kind of sat in my que for a few days. Even though I really wanted to hear it, having very recently losing a family member to cancer, and thing her battle for over a year and a half, I wasn't sure I was ready. ( she was only 11 when she passed)

I am glad I did. I needed a happy ending with this awful killer. It was weird listening to his ordeal. I could completely understand everything he had to ordeal.
He is a hero in my mind. and I wish him good health always


The narrator did a fine job reading this.

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.
