It is a story of inspiration, passion, perseverance, persistence and the promise to survive. Jean recounts her experiences from the blissful days with her fi rst true love, to becoming a widow in her twenties, to fi nding love again and having the children of her dreams, to the heartbreak of a failing marriage and diagnosis of breast cancer.
