A woman brought Miriam's book to our breast cancer support group last night and I read it in one sitting. It made me laugh out loud and validated many of the feelings I've had during the course of my treatment; what a gift! In fact, she wrote some of the exact same things I've said in the past year. I was so sorry to read her cancer returned, and now to find out that she died in 2006. My heart goes out to her husband, son and family and friends. She was a bright light in the world.
