When Adam Hodge was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of four, his ensuing four-and-a-half-year brutal struggle with cancer included many moments of despair, but also many moments of joy. Avoiding sentimentality, this amazing account of a plucky little boy who continues to reach out to help others even as his situation deteriorates is both heartbreaking and humorous. This is not just another cancer story. It is also an exquisite love story. In his short life, Adam was sustained by the love of neighbors, of family, of medical providers, of community, and especially of parents. This support allowed him, in the face of a dire prognosis, to live life fully as a fun-loving young child who gave as much love as he received, and who touched and changed so many lives. Examining the big questions of life, love, and death, and acknowledging pain even as it celebrates life, this story will hurt your heart. It will make you cry. But it will also make you laugh and make you sing. Adam's inspiring and uplifting story demonstrates that life may not be fair, but it can still be full of joy and of loving, of laughter and of tears, of life in all its complexity.
