"I can't begin to understand or appreciate what Cheri has gone through over the past several years; all the procedures, tests, doctor visits, and the opinions - not to mention the chronic pain. I have often wondered what kept her going. When other patients would have given up and reconciled themselves to a lifetime of chronic pain, medications, and disability, Cheri kept plugging away. Throughout it all, she kept a positive, chipper attitude and kept pushing herself and her providers to keep trying. She wasn't about to give up or give in. After reading her thoughts in this book, I realize that what kept her going through all the hardships was her faith. I hope that Cheri's struggles and faith will be an example, inspiration, and hope for us all."
