About the Book

When LaMoyne Dowell was born, his mother, 39 years old, was still recovering from breast cancer surgery and a radical breast cancer removal procedure. Three and one half years later, just two months prior to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, his mother broke her hip revealing that the cancer had returned with a vengeance which rendered her dependent and bedridden. Their rela¬tionship became a testament to the power of love between a little boy and his mother. With an older brother fighting over¬seas and his father having to work to put food on the table, LaMoyne and his mother were forced to reverse their roles of caring for and nurturing each other -- a true story of how a family can survive against incredible odds.
