Présentation de l'éditeur

Brain and tumour. Two of the worst words to go together in one sentence. This book follows the personal journey of a mother whose eighteen year old son faces this diagnosis. The story journeys through the medical events, the grief, the discovery of what an Acquired Brain Injury means and the aftermath of this event that shattered their lives. This is a very honest account covering a seven year period of a family’s life when facing some tough, ongoing hardships. Woven throughout are lessons and insights of faith in God that give hope and perseverance in difficult times.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Mother & son journey with son's brain tumour 28 juin 2014
Par Denis William Strangman - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a wonderful book by a Faith-filled mother as she and her family travel with her
son from 18 to 25 years of age after he is diagnosed and recovers from a pilocytic
astrocytoma brain tumour – a so-called “best case tumour”, as she was informed.

It is the story of a brain tumour survivor and his family and is fairly rare within the
non-scientific literature of brain tumours because so often the published stories are
about someone who has lost their fight or they and their carers are dealing with a
more malignant primary brain tumour, such as a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM).

Jenny Overton’s journey will provide great insights for the carers of a person newly
diagnosed with any one of the 120 different types of brain tumour. She honestly
reveals her fears and trepidation and often there is a linkage to passages of the Bible
which are relevant to her situation. This is understandable for a woman who was a
teenage convert to Christianity and has a deep acceptance of the part that God plays
in her life and that of her family.

The Overtons live in northern Tasmania in Australia, near the city of Launceston.
Their son Pete - one of four boys and then 18 years of age - was diagnosed with a
brain tumour after failing a driving test and an alert optometrist had identified
inflammation of the optic nerve.

This is the start of a seven-year journey, involving neurosurgery at the Royal Hobart
Hospital (300 kms from home) and periods within its Intensive Care Unit (ICU), High
Dependency Unit (HDU) and Rehabilitation Service.

Life happens and we all take it for granted. The author had a way of making you forget your problems and experience the day to day problems that this family experienced. This book was easy to read and I found myself forgetting my problems and becoming g part of the story. I could feel the pain,the struggles,and the love. This young man`s courage helped me to face a recent tradegy I just experienced with the sudden death of my son. Everyone needs to read this inspirational book!!

For someone who lost a teenage child to a lemon sized tumor it was an inspiring, if emotional read. It's good to hear of sucessful treatments and of a livable life for the survivor after surgery. The book shows the many facets of life with a brain tumor and how it effects everyone and everything. At times I was a little overwhelmed with the religious overtones but it did not overshadow the message of the book.

Jenny writes with honesty the truth about how her son's brain tumor affected her whole family. I was very impressed by her faith in God and her use of scripture to make sense of things and learn from them spiritually. As a Christian myself, I was happy to hear her insights about God and life. Pete has an amazing Mom.
