Carrie Host had life by the tail! At the age of forty, she had a loving husband, a beautiful family and a newborn baby. But life has an evil habit of turning happiness upside down, and for Carrie it came with a diagnosis of a rare form of cancer known as carcinoid. Life as she knew it changed forever that day.
In her memoir, “Between Me and The River,” Host documents the journey she and her family embark on as they search answers to the many, many questions that follow a devastating diagnosis such as hers.
“…one moment you are spiraling down, sure that you are utterly alone, and then circumstances reveal that you are not. This is when hope comes in and puts its arm around you.”
It takes a brave woman to lay out her life for the world to read, and Carrie Host is one of the heroes who has taken the challenge to bring light to the daily struggles millions face due to cancer.
