In the summer of 2013, Mystery Writer and Radio Personality Chuck Collins was diagnosed with a deadly form of brain cancer. This is the story of how he and a special community of professionals, friends and family made the best of a very bad situation. Portions of proceeds (60%) will go to aid families dealing with brain health issues. Go to RobbingMind.com for more information.
I think this book was very well written as one can only imagine what it's like to be hit by cancer even more so with brain cancer. It was lovely to see the support of family and friends that helped make what would have been a very hard journey, so much lighter.
To be able to go through something like this and then to relive it in again in one's writing can be difficult and it was so well done by the author. An interesting read.
