I just finished reading a book called " The Messenger" it is about Mattie J.T. Stepanek. http://www.mattieonline.com/ This is an amazing story about a young boy who had a terminal illness but this didn't let him get in the way. He was able to make an impact on people in his life and around the world. He wrote his own books and talked about Peace around the world. Even though he was dying and on life support he made an impact in people's lives. Even people who are the sickest can have hope and make an impact. No matter what you are going through you can be positive and come out of it the other end. Even the mother Jeni was able to have a positive attitude despite her lost. She lost 4 children to a neuromuscular disease that she herself had. I think it takes a lot of courage to write a book and express positives of life even though she was in grief and loss.
