Gail Konop Baker was a runner, yoga practitioner, and lifelong subscriber to Prevention magazine. As her 46th birthday approached, she looked forward to a time when she could at last take a deep breath, with her youngest child heading off to college. She finally felt as if she was getting her life back. Then she heard the words that would forever change her... Her year-long struggle with breast cancer would upstage any midlife crisis she'd fretted about. Gail was suddenly faced with the truth that awaits us all--this was her life, and she would do anything to hold on to it. But this book is about much more than the "C" word; it's about the outrageous challenges of marriage, the joys and unpredictability of motherhood, about figuring out what it is you want to do with your life, about wanting to live now.--From publisher description.
