On New Year's Eve 2014, 37 years into her struggle with cystic fibrosis, Rebecca Poole went into respiratory failure and was placed on life support in a medically induced coma.The doctors gave her days to live but she would take much more than that. The struggle to stay positive and move forward in the face of impossible odds comes across in this incredibly honest portrayal of the ups and downs of a major illness. Ray's lessons relate to relationship conflicts, personal motivation,and overwhelming obstacles. The serious subject matter is offset by his humorand wit as this self-proclaimed expert on "holding her pocket book like a man" takes you through an incredibly tough experience and what he learned from it. It was written to help patients and their family members navigate the ever-changing challenges of a progressive disease while telling an inspiring story and making a case for realistic optimism.
