Author Elizabeth Gross introduces us to Dream Accomplished:
"You have cancer". Those words changed my life. After I heard them, all I could think was, "My daughter's only 8". It just over whelmed me. "How many dreams would I be able to help her make come true?".........
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Gross. This is the true story of my cancer journey. I've written it to say thank you to my daughter's hero, Taylor Swift, and to help and inspire others as they, too, battle cancer or invisible illness. Paying forward Taylor's kindness, my family donates 100% net profits to the cancer & invisible illness research and support cause of YOUR CHOICE. I sincerely hope our story is of help to you, or someone you love. -e :)
This book is more about Elizabeth’s and Marc’s love for their daughter, Page, and their nearly super-human efforts to make Elizabeth’s cancer journey more bearable for Page by helping her meet Taylor Swift. The manner in which the immediate family worked on the dual track of fighting cancer and finding Taylor Swift is very encouraging. There is a great deal of common sense advice for anyone dealing with cancer or an invisible disease. As the title declares dream accomplished!
I enjoyed this book far more than I expected! Cancer is such a frightening topic and far more common than many of us know. Written in a very personal manner this story is very engaging! There is a good balance of information about Elizabeth’s struggle with a rare form of cancer, she doesn’t go to deep; yet she does provide links in the back of the book for those who want to learn more. Her search for Taylor Swift is just as balanced, enough information to make it interesting, without getting bogged down in details. There were many interesting turns of fate in that search and some serious genius moments!
I found one homonym error and one misplaced word. 4.9 stars is a very good score Dream Accomplished!
This is not a picture of Elizabeth Gross, but her daughter Page sharing a heart-felt hug with Taylor Swift.
