Release Day & Reveiw:Are You Listening by Michelle Grey

Cancer snuck up on me when I least expected it. But I imagine everyone probably feels that way. When I got my diagnosis, I was relatively young and otherwise healthy. I was a busy mom, wife, employee and aspiring author. Priorities shifted, and so did my perspective. Throughout my experience, I sought to become educated and I learned many things – some tangible, some intangible, but all of which I’ll share with you in this quick story. My hope is to further educate and encourage every woman, even if cancer never touches you or anyone you love.

As this is a true story, the story of Michelle's battle with Cancer, it was an eye opener.  I don't normally read these kind of books; true stories, memoirs, etc.  But this story is definelty something all women should read.
I did tear up, hey this is a very emotional subject. The author was kind enough to not go all crazy with the medical terms.  She it that simple, when it came to terms.  Michelle was brave enough to document her process through this ordeal, and brave beyond words to share it with us all as she has in this book.
Although, this is most a journal she kept, this book is well written.  She had more to the book than her journal entries.
*Warning, for those of you who are not religious or get offended when people discuss God and religion, then do not pick up this book*  But if you are a woman or know a woman, this is something to read. 
This is a quicker read, but worth it.
I was given an ARC to read and review, in exchange for an honest review.  But I honestly don't know who shouldn't read this.
