Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Nov 1, 2008 - Biography & Autobiography - 128 pages
This is a delightful, insightful, grippingly vivid and passionate account of cancer fear, fight and victory. Born Maria Madalena Machado on a remote Portuguese island, this child knew love of family and nature peppered with fearsome challenges. Forced to be strong and mature at 11 years of age, her family traveled to America and settled in Massachusetts. At 16, the jaws of discord, disease and tragedy swept Maria into a darkness of loss and terror. She has survived with the love and support of family, doctors and God. Driven to relate her life account of cancer survival and success, Maria has written this autobiographical story. This author tells this tale with a style that will hold your heart and mind through each and every page. This author is donating 25 % of the profits of this accomplished book back to the clinic that cured her, at that time known as New England Medical Center Floating Hospital for Children.
