When six-month old Dakota is diagnosed with cancer, her young mom begins the journey of devastation, anguish and pain that no parent should ever have to endure. Shari Ann Almeida gives us a look into the horrifying reality of childhood cancer, revealing with brutal honesty, the harrowing picture of a baby girl being carved open, pumped full of poison, and fighting for her life before she even knew how to speak. As with many thousands of parents of childhood cancer patients, she discovers the profound feelings of isolation and often feels unseen in her war against her daughter's disease. Many long days and nights are spent alone in the darkness, pleading with her baby to keep on breathing. In this first of a series of books, Shari Ann boldly shares the nightmare come true for her family so that all of the other warrior moms and dads can know that they are not alone. They are loved. They are heard. And, they are seen.
