The mission of When I Die, Take my Panties is a much needed wake-up call for women over 40 to start listening to their bodies and catch ovarian cancer early on. But it isn't just about cancer. It is a reminder of the personal transformation that comes from tragedy and what can be learned along the way. Death forces us to face a harsh reality: So often we want to control life - and the truth is we can't. We must come to terms with people and situations as they are, not as we wish they were. When I Die, Take My Panties takes the reader through a journey of discovering the gifts in their own life as they learn how to appreciate what is right in front of them.
