According to data found in everydayhealth.com, an estimated 359,000 people in the United States live with a primary brain or central nervous system tumor. Although uncommon among young people, brain tumors are the second leading cause of death due to cancer for children and teenagers below the age of 20. Buying Time – Storing Memories, a memoir written by Carole Browning -Black, reveals how this disease tested the strong bonds between mother and child.
The book reveals the true story of a family going through a trial by fire. Mentally and physically handicapped, young Stephanie is diagnosed with a brain tumor and undergoes surgery to remove part of her brain. Her mother, guilt-ridden and wondering if she had missed the signs that would have led to an earlier diagnosis, urgently tries to find any means to prolong her child’s life.
Written in the perspective of a mother desperate to protect her child, Buying Time - Storing Memories is a touching story that reveals the depths of a mother’s love. The author’s poignant choice of words captures the unwavering essence of motherhood and shows how far a mother would go to protect her child.
