Here is an excerpt from the article:
"Baker said she found her mother's handwritten journal in a memorabilia box in her garage last year. She had not opened the box in years, but felt compelled to look through it.
She found a bright orange binder and in it were all the journal entries her mother kept.
"I started to read it and I just realized this should not be sitting in a box," Baker said. "I spent months transcribing it."
She added, "It made it fresh, new, and raw and painful... There were times I felt I could not breathe. It was a very emotional experience to go through.""
Eighteen Months To Live contains the journal written by Midge Rylander in her final months of life. The story takes us through Midge's last days in which she experienced pain and fear but also found peace within herself and joy in life.
