22 years ago today, Matt Patterson and his wife lost a daughter to cancer. Years later, he turned his grief and Emily’s story into a novel, My Emily. I was fortunate enough to be gifted a copy by my good friend, Matt, for Christmas last year. It took me a few months to bring myself to read the story because I knew it was going to be sad. However, upon reading it, I couldn’t help but count my blessings and pray that nothing would ever happen to my family like that. I posted a review of the book, which you can read here.
Today, Matt is offering her story for free on Kindle. I hope that you will all go grab a copy and read this touching story.
This is from Matt:
It’s so very hard to believe we lost our Emily 22 years ago today. September is never easy for us as it also plays host to Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Today, on the anniversary of her passing, our little effort is to let others know of Emily’s story. We are offering the Kindle format of MY EMILY for FREE – TODAY ONLY.
All I ask is that you share this with your friends, family and those who, perhaps, may be walking the same path that we have traveled.
Thank you so much! God bless …
As we approach this day – we ask that you share with your friends this little video – to remind each of us that there are so many little ones battling cancer. We miss our Emily. She has a legacy to touch others. We pray you’ll take a minute or so to watch this video.
Thank you so much and God bless.
