My Bags Were Always Packed: A Mother’s Journey Through Her Son’s Cancer Treatment and Remission is a heart-warming and triumphant story for anyone whose life is touched by cancer.

Elizabeth Szewczyk’s loving memoir of her son’s victorious battle with cancer shows a devoted family coming together in a time of personal crisis. At the center of the book and the family is a loving mother who encounters her doubt and grief in ways that makes this book heroic. Szewczyk captures the nearly overwhelming emotions of her son’s illness with remarkably clear vision, humor, and humanity in this book about a brush with tragedy that is an equally haunting book about faith and life regained.

  Made me cry!!! , 03/02/2006
Reviewer: Jennifer Marony
My mother gave me this book after my younger sister was diagnosed with Hodgkin's. Our whole family took turns reading it and it has helped us cope with the diagnosis so much. I would tell anyone going through this experience to definetly read this book. And if you can only sympathize, read it anyway- it's so well written and tells a great story. the best part of it is that it's true. Some proceeds also go to cancer research and Make-a-Wish, which was another reason I bought it. The more research there is, the closer we are to a cure for my sister and the millions like her who are infected with cancer. Read this book! It's worth it.

Reviewer: Brian
This book is a must read for all along the lines of "Tuesdays With Morrie." For this is not a book about a boy a with cancer but about the strength of the human spirit.

Reviewer: Kristi
I definitely recommend reading this book--It's an inside look to how one family continues living and growing after the tragedy of cancer strikes a member of the family. It's remarkable how the Szewczyks forge together as a family in a time of crisis and still manage to have a few laughs. Completely heart-warming and inspiring.

Reviewer: Carrie
This story was recommended to me by someone, and I in turn recommended it to someone else who is going through a similar experience. Anyone going through a family member with cancer should read this book to know that you are not alone!

Reviewer: Steph
This is a must read for anyone who loves someone, especially parents. I cried as a mom for the love and support of this family, and cheered as her son's health returned. It is a hard ordeal for anyone to go through, and this family turned it into a positive experience. I loved it!
