Reader Feedback: Cancer is Kicking my Butt, but I’ve Got a Really Big Butt

Now that my first book has been out for a couple months, I wanted to start posting some reviews and feedback.

Thank you all for the support! Now that my book has been out for a couple of months, I wanted to start sharing some feedback I have received from readers. 

“This book perfectly captures how hard life feels after losing someone you love. Shufei and her family take you through their emotional journey of learning to cope after the loss of a husband and father to cancer. Shufei recounts her life with her husband, caring for him through his diagnosis, working and raising a family after his passing, and a phone call he recorded that she kept private for years. This book will transform the way you see events in your life. Nothing is coincidental – sometimes it just takes time for you to see the meaning behind what happens in your life.” -Kylie Wilson

His Last Call

This phone call took place on February 26th, 2017 at 1:30 P.M. on a sunny and windy day in Cedar Falls, Iowa, with a call from Long Island, New York. The conversation was between Rich and Scott, who were both Multiple Myeloma cancer patients that connected through the Multiple Myeloma Cancer Society. They were paired together through similar work experiences; both were engineers and supervisors in sales and management. Rich recorded the phone call for me, his wife, Shufei, and it just so happened to be one of his last conversations.”

This is the phone call that inspired me to write my first book, “Cancer is Kicking my Butt, but I’ve Got a Really Big Butt.” The circumstances surrounding this phone call, as well as how it helped me through my grieving journey are fully explained in the book, but will be touched on during in later episodes of my podcast.

My book is available for purchase on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Cancer-Kicking-Butt-but-Really/dp/B0863TWSGM/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=cancer+is+kicking+my+butt&qid=1588883167&sr=8-1
