Any expectant parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle can attest to the joy and excitement of first learning that a new arrival will soon be in their lives. But what happens when this excitement does a 180-degree turn a month before the baby’s due date? In Do You Get It?, a new mother and cancer survivor, Lin-Pei, shares her personal roller-coaster journey of healing and self-awareness. See how physical, spiritual, mental, social and psychological factors turn an unforeseen misfortune of dealing with a preterm baby and a terminal cancer diagnosis into a rewarding life worth living. This book offers a unique insight to those who have faced or know someone who is facing life-changing encounters, providing perspective and appreciation of the shock, struggle and pain of having multiple adverse events occur together.
