Love You So Much, A Shared Memoir
Victoria Zacheis Greve and Karen Greve Young
This is the story of Vicki and Karen, a mother and daughter writing in separate voices about the nearly five years in which they battle Vicki’s ovarian cancer, plan a wedding, struggle with infertility, experience the joy of pregnancy, navigate the first and last days of marriage, begin and retire from careers, move across continents, visit each other as often as possible, and decide to write a book about it all. Along their journey, they discovered that life doesn’t stop with a cancer diagnosis – sometimes it even accelerates, as theirs certainly did. More than thirty thousand women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer each year in North America and the UK alone. Any of them could have written about her cancer experience, and many have. What is unique about this book is that it is the shared story of a mother and daughter, each of them writing from her unique perspective about coping with cancer as life moves forward in unpredictable ways. This story is one of the lasting legacies of Vicki Greve, a woman who persevered through her battle against ovarian cancer with style and grace. It was written by women for women and their families, to which millions of women – and men – will relate. Proceeds will be donated in support of cancer research.
