A story of inspiration and hope. Heartbreak and reality. A quiet lesson in grace and acceptance from a young woman who saw life as an opportunity even when she was given a medical death sentence.
Diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at age three, Brianna Oas Strand was told she wouldn't live past 13. A tragically short life spent in and out of hospitals, ruthless infections, medical trials and treatments, and no promises. But with a superhuman spirit and the support of her family and community, Brianna fought for not only each breath but to put life into each breath.
Told through her husband's eyes, Loving Someone Who Is Dying is Brianna's moving story as she battled CF yet relentlessly pursued a full life working with animals, falling in love, starting a family, becoming an advocate for those with CF, and taking the fight for funding to the most public platform: the United States Senate. Loving Someone Who Is Dying is a book for anyone facing life challenges, simply looking for faith, and a reason to truly choose happiness over despair, hope over helplessness. It continues her legacy and promoting her message to the world: Choose your attitude, create your life.
