Chances are you or someone you love will soon be faced with an unexpected illness, disability or loss. The choices you make have the power to open new doors for yourself and for others. Discover the powerful influence one person can unleash in the face of tragedy. One fall day Alexandra (Alex) Graham began complaining of pain in her knee. At 16, she was diagnosed with bone cancer. Her world and the world of those she loved would never be the same. Fighting cancer, amputation of her leg and partial loss of lung Alex defines herself by who she is and the choices she makes. Alex did not get the miracle she wanted most, but her life and her selfless wish left the world a better place. In their own words family, friends, medical experts, caregivers and a rock star describe how this teenage girl opened doors and made a difference in their lives. Through her story find ways you too can confront adversity, live life with meaning, comfort and inspire others, avoid needless guilt and establish a living legacy. Reviews: ForeWord Magazine In less than two years, she (Alex) created a legacy not only for her loved ones, but for cancer sufferers everywhere. ... this book is inspiring for anyone faced with the sudden illness of a loved one, and the brevity of the chapters makes it an easy read. Rabbi Harold Kushner, Author, "When Bad Things Happen to Good People" A moving story of a brave girl who confronted tragedy not by asking, "Why me?" but by asking, "What can I do with this to help others?" Rachel Naomi Remen, M. D., Author, "Kitchen Table Wisdom" Sometimes a young person is an Old Soul ? someone whose wisdom, compassion, capacity for love, and courage could not possibly be learned in the course of their short lifetime. To meet someone like this is to confront Mystery ? and be blessed by it. Ed Robertson, Singer, Barenaked Ladies The first time I met Alex was the day before our record came out. Her story and her wish are remarkable.
