Surviving: How We Loved Through Pancreatic Cancer
"Emma was still channeling Rocky Balboa, talking about how she was going to beat cancer. She defined survival as completely defeating the disease. I defined survival as weathering the storm with grace. She was so strong, surviving on the force of her will. But her body wasn't cooperating, no matter how hard her spirit fought." "Surviving" is the story of one couple's journey with cancer, from diagnosis to death, written by the surviving member of that couple, K.Blake Cash "Beautifully told...honest as an arrow." -humorist Barry Parnham "a beautiful piece of work...I know in my heart that she is "out and about" watching over us even now." -Dr. harish lavu, Assistant Professor of Surgery, Thomas Jefferson University
