    Book Review: Me and My Shadow by John W. Pattison

    me and my shadows book review

    It is a story of a warrior who not only fought for his own life but also lived the near-death experience of his daughter Donna due to leukemia.

    “When you get a life live it to the fullest because not everyone gets one” after reading this line, I know one thing – life is so precious never take it for granted.

    The book is a memoir of John Pattison who shares his real-life journey of overcoming cancer which he had suffered when he was only a teenager and also reflects upon his fears when his daughter was battling cancer.

    It is a heart-wrenching and emotional book from the author who not only survived cancer but also gives a glimmer of hope to many people suffering from life-threatening diseases.

    My Thoughts About the Book

    John Walker Pattison in his book ‘Me and my Shadow’ shares his own battles, he mentions those phases of a cancer patient that we are not even aware of. Patients might seem brave outside but only they know what they are going through.

    This is a really informational and motivational book that not only talks about fears, and challenges but deeply elaborates on how to conquer them.

    ‘Me and My Shadow’ also talks about the psychological changes a patient as well as his family go through. I liked the way he helped so many patients fighting cancer by narrating his own story. Infertility is a really big issue among the population and when you are fighting cancer nobody really cares about these things they only need your survival, but John emphasizes the right to information beforehand is really necessary.

    I read the book in just two sittings. It was an emotional yet courageous book, it really touched my heart. If you’re connected with cancer in any way this book is a must-read for you. Fortunately, if you aren’t then this book will make you love yourself a little more and be grateful for this wonderful life god has given us.
