    Journey of Dying with Cancer

    I received this book through Goodreads and its publisher, Simon and Schuster. What a sad story. When you finish the book, you have a heavy heart. This is a memoir about dying. The book is broken into sections – each Stage of cancer. It is a journey through cancer treatment and the daily struggles that come with it. The author, Riggs, had two young sons. The reader gains insight in the cancer patient, spouse, and children coping. In addition to Riggs’ journey to die, the story shares how her family deals with Riggs’ mother’s death. Riggs references Emerson, her great-great-great grandfather, and Montaigne’s biography throughout the story. They bring a philosophical view to things. At times, there is light hearted humor: “Kids: if you ever get freaked when you are making out with someone … maybe I will watch to make sure you don’t do something disgusting.” The insight to share with her children after she dies was funny but also sad. Although the book is a downer, it is worth reading. I hope to never go through this journey but I now have insight if I do. It’s a book worth picking up.
