Synopsis

A beautifully written account by 23-year-old Erin Zammett of her battle against cancer and survival against the odds Twenty-three years old and fresh out of college, in love with her boyfriend Nick, and having just started a great new job as assistant editor at Glamour magazine, Erin Zammett was looking forward to a future of unlimited promise - until her doctor told her that a blood test revealed she had a type of cancer, Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia, the only known treatment for which was a bone marrow transplant; and that, without treatment, she had roughly five years to live. With the support of her family and friends, her own inner strength, and a recently approved experimental drug, Erin Zammett immediately began the journey that would lead her to recovery. She began to document her experiences, to provide an outlet for her thoughts, and the result is a memoir of unparalleled candour and poignancy, encompassing much more than her disease.

Above all, it's the story of a twenty-something living her dream life amid the unlimited excitement, adventure, and potential of the city, confronting the challenges of life and her new job - battling cancer - with unbounded courage and optimism.
