So I am compelled to come out of my self-imposed retreat from tech to post a heartfelt thank you to @m_koirala for courageously and candidly sharing your healing story. The authenticity quotient in your book makes this a valuable read for everyone - whether you have been affected by cancer or not. I can’t help but notice parallels in our journeys as well. In case you catch a glimpse of my pjs at the bottom of the frame...that’s the sign of an uninterrupted reading session. I mean, I can’t even pull on my jeans until I finish the book. So relatable. So real. So uplifting. So difficult. So heart breaking. Bravo. Much love to you and I’m awaiting our next meeting. Your learning culled from your ovarian cancer experience will heal others. I’m sure of this. @penguinindia
