In a candid and witty memoir, Jodi recounts how her life was transformed when, as a 33-year-old wife and mother, she was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Unwilling to accept her new fate, Jodi's family searches for a doctor who will join their fight against the odds. But when the surgery that could save her life thrusts her into battle with a devastating spinal fluid leak and facial paralysis, even her own children fear her new appearance and physical failings. Jodi perseveres, even with an injured body and spirit. Interweaving the inspiring, provoking, and sometimes disturbing, Jodi reveals the hells and highs of her journey as she fights for hope and purpose - and life.

This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened to so far.
I loved the intimate details Jodi incorporated into the story to help us live this experience with her. It felt like I was laying in the bed with her, experiencing everything!
Listing to Jodi read this book herself, brings us that much closer to her experience! Hearing Jodi's voice makes us hear the story as she wants it to be told.
It is amazing that Jodi is able to recall so much about her experience and document it so well. It is also amazing that she is able to take this experience and turn it into such strength. I can only wish to have this much strength. She is such an inspiration!
This was a beautiful story of triumph over adversity, endurance and faith. Wow, what a ride! I was rivited at every turn of events and felt like I was there with Jodi. I loved hearing it read by the author because it made it even more personal. thank you for sharing your journey with me.
I generally listen to fiction. This is a break back to reality for me. I am blessed to be a friend of the author and had already heard many of her experiences. It was eye opening to me to listen to the finer details of these incredible events.
I loved all the stories of compassion from so many different people in Jodi's life. The story that resonated with me was the two sister CNAs that cared for and bathed Jodi in one of her darker moments. I loved and felt the compassion and care that these two individuals displayed.
Hearing it in her own words was incredible. I know Jodi and her husband and kids. She perfectly captures their expressions and tones of voice.
