This book is a work of fiction. Names, characters and events are the product of the author’s imagination. Any similarity to actual persons or events is purely coincidental.
I would like to dedicate this book to four extraordinary women who have been a huge part of my life, and who helped defined who I am today. First, to my grandmother, who was like a second mother to me, especially when my own mother had passed. You were always there, even through your own illness. She gave to me the second person I dedicate this book to, my mother. Thanks, Mom, for making me a strong woman who was able to raise two beautiful children to adulthood, my two daughters, to whom I also make this dedication. Having you two in my life gave me strength to pull through my battle with cancer and win. You gave me a reason to get up in the morning and to face what life had to offer. And don’t we have the greatest adventures?
My love, always and forever,
