Serenity Bohon is twenty-nine, married to her childhood sweetheart, and mother to two young sons. After becoming pregnant again, Serenity is diagnosed with a rare, aggressive cancer. As she faces her worst fears, and struggles with what it means to have faith, she gathers around her the people she has loved.
"I wanted to look at them," she says, "to watch them laugh. I wanted to thank them for making life great." As Serenity faces her life-threatening disease, and growing fear about the life inside her, she leans on those she has learned from since childhood. She finds from her children the will to fight and finds strength from those who faced the disease before her. She soon learns those around her have not come to watch her die but to teach her how to live. The Thank You Room is the story of how they survived together.
