Abstract:

In June 2011, Susan Spencer-Wendel learned she had ALS, known in the UK as Motor Neurone Disease: an irreversible condition that systematically destroys the nerves that power the muscles. While Susan cannot stop the rapid decline of her body, and her inevitable death, she refuses to give up on life. After her diagnosis, she began taking special trips: to the Yukon, to see the Northern Lights with her best friend; to Budapest, where she and her husband spent the first two years of their marriage; to Northern California to meet her birth mother; to Cyprus, the home country of the deceased birth father she never met. In this unforgettable memoir, Susan invites readers on her transformational journey, sharing the gratitude and wisdom that guide her.
