Review:

Every so often we encounter a remarkable person who, when faced with her own personal tragedy, thinks only of others and how they will be affected. One such person is the author of this book, Peggy Maddox. From the day she was diagnosed as having malignant metastasized melanoma, Peggy's main concern has been how she could turn this tragedy in her own life into a way of helping others to cope when confronted with a similar situation. By her own experience, Peggy Maddox has proven that being diagnosed with a terminal illness is no reason to stop living. Today, six years later, Peggy's courage and her refusal to leave any stone unturned in her search for 'life,' serves as an incredible example of how challenging a health crisis can, not only give purpose and direction to life, but can also make it richer and fuller. -- J. Anne Nizze, B. A., P. A. C., John Wayne Clinic, UCLA
