I first read this book when my son was first diagnosed with cancer. I read it to him just a few weeks before his passing. He had started to read it about 6 months before, but didn't finish it. This was the one book he wanted me to read it to him. It was very comforting to him and myself. So many things in this book I know to be true. I know that my son is doing great things not only for our family but other children who face things similar battles like his own. I recommend this to anyone who has lost someone close and dear to them.
