In April 1996, Menya Wolfe was diagnosed with a rare and virulent form of breast cancer that spread to her brain and involved numerous surgeries, chemotherapies and other treatments.

Four and a half years later, having exhausted every medical possibility, she reluctantly began palliative care—at home, where she wanted to stay. A team of fifty family members, friends, volunteers and professionals rallied around to support her in her final months.

This book, written by her father and drawing extensively on the journal kept by her care team, tells the bittersweet story of that time.

A share of proceeds from this book will be donated to Trinity Home Hospice.

"The hospice movement which is sweeping Canada grew out of a certain knowledge that death may not be preventable, but it can be softened by acts of gentle kindness. It is not only the very sick person who is the recipient of the spiritual peace which intermittently accompanies skilled and generous palliative care. Care-givers find themselves deeply and forever changed...
“This book is about a tragic death, but in many ways it is a celebration of life.... Morris Wolfe keeps his suffering to himself, but it is writ plain between the lines of this moving tribute to his glorious, gifted daughter and all those who loved her.” - June Callwood
