Just weeks before Mike died, Julia was diagnosed with a rare form of cervical cancer (what Mike called her "sympathy cancer"), and within days of burying her brother she underwent a radical hysterectomy, beginning her own journey through "the International House of Cancer".
Drawing from these Job-like travails, Julia wrote this remarkably funny and touching monologue about a family that managed to persevere with humor, grace, and love.

"A grand achievement...a lesson in love and tolerance." (USA Today)
"Sweeney offers living proof that laughter is the only revenge." (The San Francisco Chronicle)
I love the way she tells the story, she makes you laugh at the same time she shares her life experiences and how she overcame what she had to go through and go on with her life. Truly enjoyable.
