This is a sequel to my first book. It picks up where the first book ends. It examines how I found a new direction in life while trying to incorporate my other experiences. I was thrust into the world of young adult brain tumor advocacy and met some very inspiration people and organizations along the way. I also included the perspectives of some people who were instrumental in helping me find a new direction in life.
