by Kimberly McCormick

“In only a few seconds our lives can be changed forever.” For Kim McCormick, those seconds revealed a diagnosis of ovarian cancer. As devastating as that news might be, what we learn from Kim’s chronicle of her surgery, the follow-up chemotherapy, and the slow climb back to health is that a life threatening disease does not have to extinguish our power to enjoy life. With the love and support of family and friends and a strong faith in the Lord, she finds the strength and courage to face her moments of weakness and move beyond them with humor and grace. She shows us how caring for others can make it easier to care for ourselves.

This book is also a testament to the wonders of modern medicine in the hands of exceptional medical practitioners. She shares her medical journey from the comfortable familiarity of her long-time OB/Gyn doctor’s office to the surgery and examination rooms of West Penn Hospital. At each stage we are introduced to capable and caring individuals who confront the reality of life threatening illnesses every day and still manage to smile and share a joke. The harsh reality of the circumstance never fades from view, but as much as we fear the word cancer, we learn from Kim’s experiences that the ability to experience joy and happiness is within reach with a bit of effort, faith, and love.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Pittsburgh Chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) , and the American Cancer Society.
