Publisher's Summary

Memoirs of a caregiver turned cancer patient, turned professional athlete: A young widow suddenly must raise three children alone - all while living with a rare blood cancer and working full time. 

This situation might make any woman despair, but Sally Kalksma is not just any woman. With her passion for life and her infectious energy, she found the motivation to power through adversity with tenacity and grit while never giving up hope, even when life looked its bleakest. 

Although Sally is now in remission, she still takes chemo as a maintenance therapy for Multiple Myeloma, but she knows how to turn pain into positivity. In Life Gets in the Way, this superstar, world-renowned athlete shares her memoirs on climbing toward a world without cancer.

This Book is a Gift!

Thank you Sally for this gift of a memoir! I appreciate your honesty, your humor and your motivational messages throughout the entire book.

I’m a fellow caregiver to a husband who is working hard to live another day with his family, while he fights cancer. I look up to you and your example of resilience, to keep my head up and heart strong, as I help my husband and daughter to stay strong.

This is a book I know I will listen to again and again, especially on the tough days!
