Not a book (yet) but quite an incredible, heartfelt, family blog, mostly written by Miles (the patient) with appearances by the Mom and the Dad, chronicling his 2+ year battle with pediatric cancer. He begins blogging at age 16, up until this week, when cancer finally took his life.
The insight, pathos, inspiration, spirituality, and wisdom, contained in this *human experience* put into writing, is something unmistakably...... unforgettable.
I was not sad when I finished reading....only strengthened.
Our experiences are, indeed, on inventory for each other. Every individual has so much to give.
The blog starts at the end...I reversed the order of pages so I could read from the beginning. There are pages I wanted to copy out and keep forever....the Dad's Father's Day message to his son, notes from the Mom which are so insightful, and the incredibly self-actualized and optimistic teenager, Miles.
They are all good writers, and the fact that this blog isn't maudlin or even overly-sentimental is a testimony to that. They have *captured* the human experience and what it is to be a family.
