A Tapestry of Courage by Mary A. Welch

In this tribute to her daughter the author tells of Mary Ellens battle with cancer. Stricken with osteogenic sarcoma in 1982 at sixteen, resulting in the loss of her right leg, Mary Ellen lived the next 5 1/2 years to their fullest experiencing the ups & downs of the Big C as she referred to the disease. She completed high school, continuing her education at Springfield College despite the ordeals of chemotherapy, radiation, & operations, taking part in the activities that she enjoyed most - skiing, softball, concerts, travel & parties. She was an inspiration to all, facing life with courage, determination & perseverance. A beautifully written book including letters from Mary Ellens friends & classmates as well as Mary Ellens own reflections. This book, a must for those who have experienced the loss of a young adult, offers inspiration to anyone dealing with a terminal illness. Judy Astbury, Social Worker at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute: A TAPESTRY OF COURAGE has given me more insight in dealing with my osteogenic patients. Paula DArcy, SONG FOR SARAH: You made Mary Ellens spirit ring out. Bob Krol, Mary Ellens softball coach: She taught me the meaning of spunk. Ken Childs, Campus Minister at Springfield College: Mary Ellen showed us ordinary people how we can face life & death with courage & humor.
