Though he titled his book Mom’s Cancer, Fies' memoir focuses not on his mother, but on the sadness and torment of three siblings as they come to terms with her imminent death. Though they share the same journey, each confronts the ordeal in their own way. Their lives are greatly affected by their mother’s suffering and their familial relationship is forever changed. The brutally honest portrayal is one that rings true with millions of family members affected by the loss of a parent.
