Overview
"Love Letters" shares the powerful story of Anna Gordon. When she was a twenty-one-year-old senior at the University of Alabama in 2009, she received a cancer diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia eight weeks prior to her graduation. As harrowing as the Gordon family's saga was, its effect on hundreds of people in West Alabama, and beyond, who became wrapped in the drama of their journey's ups and downs, serves as a dramatic and heart-warming demonstration of the best attributes of human nature. This tale will reinvigorate any reader's faith in the power of good to conquer bad and in the ability to find meaning and purpose after difficult, even tragic, circumstance.
Description
"Love Letters" shares the powerful story of Anna Gordon. When she was a twenty-one-year-old senior at the University of Alabama in 2009, she received a cancer diagnosis of Acute Myeloid Leukemia eight weeks prior to her graduation. As harrowing as the Gordon family's saga was, its effect on hundreds of people in West Alabama, and beyond, who became wrapped in the drama of their journey's ups and downs, serves as a dramatic and heart-warming demonstration of the best attributes of human nature. This tale will reinvigorate any reader's faith in the power of good to conquer bad and in the ability to find meaning and purpose after difficult, even tragic, circumstance. This memoir is told in a traditional, straightforward manner; nevertheless, it remains an uncommonly intimate portrait of one family's courage, faith, and love, while confronting the savagery of cancer. To tell the tale of his daughter's battle with leukemia, the author includes the numerous emails he sent to family members, friends, and acquaintances on an almost daily basis during his daughter's two-and-a-half-year struggle. The emails provided daily updates on the daughter's condition while she was in the hospital. "Love Letters" is a love letter to all those people who chose to have hope and demonstrate love to a family in crisis. None of the participants in this story will ever be the same again.
