Wise beyond her years, six-year-old Elena Desserich never stopped teaching those around her to appreciate the miracle of everyday living, even as she battled a rare form of brain cancer.

Notes Left Behind tells a story of humility and inspiration. Through personal and candid journal entries they wrote as a remembrance for Elena's younger sister, Brooke and Keith Desserich share their emotional journey as a family, along with the private notes Elena hid around the house for them to discover after she was gone. Heartbreaking, moving, and inspiring, Elena's notes show us how, even during the darkest moments of life, it is possible to find hope and encouragement though selfless love.

About the Author:

Brooke and Keith Desserich live in Cincinnati with their daughter, Gracie. They have several businesses, but their main professions are as a mother and a father. With the help of family and many friends, they founded The Cure Starts Now, a revolutionary cancer foundation dedicated to a "home run" cure strategy for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer.

From AudioFile:

In the pantheon of horrors a parent can envision, the ultimate is the death of a child. Brooke and Keith Desserich open up their personal journey through this nightmare in the heartbreaking chronicle of 5-year-old Elena's final days of struggle with a fatal brain tumor. Keith himself delivers the introduction and afterword, lending an even greater level of intimacy to the journal. Narrators T. Ryder Smith and Coleen Marlo's presentation of the parents' wrenching emotions enhances the poignancy of the family's ordeal without descending into the maudlin. The audio version's only shortcoming is the listener's inability to see Elena's drawings and read her notes, which are reproduced in the print version. M.O.B. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Elena has left behind a story of resilience, hope and most of all, love. We can't help but take her into our hearts, and carry the best of her into our own lives."--Jeffrey Zaslow, coauthor of The Last Lecture Notes Left Behind by Brooke and Keith Desserich began as a journal they kept after their five-year-old daughter Elena was diagnosed with brain cancer and given just 165 days to live. As poignant and inspiring as Randy Pausch's The Last Lecture, it is the story of the courage of a truly remarkable little girl who accomplished so much in so little time--and of her parents' love and dedication to their child and their family. New York Times bestselling author James Patterson was profoundly moved by Elena's beautiful life and Notes Left Behind, calling it, "a stunning story that teaches us how precious children, family, and life are, and that the sacrifices we make are worth it. I won't forget the Desserich family, and neither will you.". Seller Inventory # AAS9780061886409
