    Her dad is right, she is a powerful person. Sometimes it seems like Women are the stronger ones. She is amazing. I was trying to get myself going this morning and I felt like I was doing things for nothing. I needed some kind of boost . This article gave it to me. Anyone who has had a major illness knows how hard it can be. I have been there. The difference is that I wasn't responsible for kids. I bet the book is good. Maybe it is good that she wrote thinking about people of different religions. We all need faith. We all want to know that what we do matters. I felt a tear reading this. Sometimes it feels like nobody cares. So, reading about a lady who is so positive despite the difficulties helped me focus more on what I should be doing. I should be giving thanks like she is and feeling gratitude. There are times when we want to say "no" to things we have to go through. I just want to say thanks to a beautiful person. Your story does matter. God bless you.

    Gildas said, "Most people will live longer, imo, if they refuse chemotherapy and radiation therapy."

    Your "imo" doesn't change the facts. Chemo and radiation are not appropriate for every cancer case, but to categorically reject medical help based on nothing more than opinion is foolhardy. Chemo and radiation can and do extend life. On the subject of healing, Elder Dallin H. Oaks said, “Latter-day Saints believe in applying the best available scientific knowledge and techniques” (Ensign, May 2010).

    An inspiration indeed. Good on her! And only 15 rejections? I'm jealous. I hope her book is a wild success.

    Now, does anyone know what 'mushed bananas' are?

    “Trials can either break you or make you unbreakable, and it’s up to you which way it’s going to go,” Bryant said. “I’m in the process of trying to become unbreakable, just like the rest of us.”
