A moving and inspirational memoir by celebrated journalist Susan Spencer-Wendel who makes the most of her final days after discovering she has amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
After journalist Spencer-Wendel learns of her diagnosis of ALS, more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, she embarks on several adventures. This includes taking her fourteen-year-old daughter, Marina, to New York City's Kleinfeld's Bridal to shop for Marina's future wedding dress-- an occasion Spencer-Wendell knows she will never see. This is her account of living a full life with humor, courage, and love, accepting death with grace and dignity, and showing the people we love and care about how very much they mean to us.

This beautiful book, by quite an amazing woman, is joyful and inspiring-not morbid or downbeat. It is very much worth reading.

This story is heart-warming yet heart breaking. After being told she has ALS Susan decides to live her final days with courage through special moments shared with loved ones. A page-turner.
