“If you died tomorrow… what would be your legacy?”
Death does not begin with the loss of the ability to breath, or the last beat of your heart. Cissy learns this as she takes us on an inspiring and eye-opening journey filled with love, friendship, laughter… and hope. This book is about the value of every moment of your life and fighting a good fight.
Cissy is your typical hard working, single mother, who leads a very simple life. Until one day, when a cancer diagnosis has her spinning in circles. Not one to sit around and do nothing, and with years of experience in the medical field, she decides to research new medications and clinical studies on the Internet. Then all of a sudden, she hits a block wall. Why are the pharmaceuticals holding back ‘orphan’ drugs that have the ability to save thousands of lives? And..why are the greedy insurance companies refusing to pay for these medications to keep people alive? Cissy goes on a quest to find these answers. What she discovers is shocking.
With an anger that leaves her cynical, and with time running out, she sets out to ‘right a wrong.’ She does the unimaginable…
In this new age of technology… Hackers become a reality, and new Robin Hoods become our heroes!
Review: 4 Stars
This book is very well written, in watching how Cissy deals with the devastating news of the big “C” (cancer). The book takes you on a journey with Cissy, her friends, her family, and her doctors and brings with it the feelings of hope, love, anger, humor, and loss. There is so much that happens in the short time period of when Cissy learns of her diagnosis and the loss of life, but the story is not rushed or glossed over..as a reader you are taken along in this ride of life, you feel for each and every character. There is some talk in this book as to how the government and pharmaceutical companies go about funding and I think it just makes the story that much more believable. This story may not have a typical HEA, or maybe it does…
I think this book just proves that what you do in your life and what is handed to you makes you and what you do with it that much more important……I wish everyone could make a positive mark on everyone you have the chance to meet…..memories are our legacy, make them count.
