When author Marilyn Pelkey's son, Kendall, was twenty-seven, he was diagnosed with an unusual and aggressive cancer. Less than two years later, he passed away.
A recently separated father of three children at the time of his diagnosis, Kendall was an outgoing and open-minded man who loved music and saw strangers as friends he hadn't met yet. In this memoir, Pelkey shares the story of their lives and of Kendall's battle with cancer. She recalls the history of their family, from her childhood through the youth and adulthood of Kendall and his sister, Elizabeth. She also explores how cancer changed her life forever as she learned to live with this new reality. The year after Kendall's death, she and many members of Kendall's family got involved with the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and they have worked hard to keep Kendall's memory alive.
This personal narrative shares a heartbreaking story, but reminds us that there can be comfort found in this second life following the death of a loved one in knowing that you are not alone.
