Aunt Guida is a book about cancer. For those who have it and for those who see them having it. More than a book about cancer, it is a book about love.
I don’t remember the exact day, nor the exact hour, but I remember exactly how I felt.
I woke up. I picked up the phone and dialed the number I had in mind. The call was established. I was about to get the news I had been anxiously waiting for but not even for a second had I thought they’d be as dark as the ones I got on that day. Cancer. Yes, I had heard it well. Cancer.
This is how André starts telling us about the disease Aunt Guida - his mother at heart - faced. It is the beginning of the true story cancer made them live. An intense journey of ups and downs where the only true constant was their love for each other. The love they had always shared before the disease. The love they keep sharing after it.
