My Village: A Young Family's Story of Cancer, Love, and Gratitude | [Diolinda Peterson]

My Village: A Young Family's Story of Cancer, Love, and Gratitude

Early one Saturday morning in October 2004, Diolinda Peterson found a lump in her breast—her worst nightmare after watching her own mother, only five years before, fight the disease and lose her life to cancer. Suddenly, her world was consumed with diagnosis, surgery, and chemotherapy, forcing her to face her own mortality. Throughout this year-long battle, though, she was not alone, but instead supported by family and friends, whom she lovingly referred to as her Village.

Publisher's Summary

"I was a thirty-something woman with a husband, a daughter, and a dog...And then, one morning, I found a lump in my right breast, and my life stopped, shifted direction, and became something I could never have imagined."

Early one Saturday morning in October 2004, Diolinda Peterson found a lump in her breast—her worst nightmare after watching her own mother, only five years before, fight the disease and lose her life to cancer. Suddenly, her world was consumed with diagnosis, surgery, and chemotherapy, forcing her to face her own mortality. Fearing that history might repeat itself, she considered the repercussions that her death might have on her husband and young daughter. Throughout this year-long battle, though, she was not alone, but instead supported by family and friends, whom she lovingly referred to as her Village.

My Village: A Young Family's Story of Cancer, Love, and Gratitude is a story of hope surpassing incredible fear and loss. As a family, the Petersons forced themselves to name their horror, honor their fear, and reframe their minds and hearts with love and gratitude's power. Courageously written, this memoir constructs a realistic picture of what it feels and looks like for a young woman to have cancer, and it shares how a family coped, survived, and eventually thrived despite their terrifying journey.
