Hug Everyone You Know by Antoinette Truglio Martin

Antoinette Truglio Martin never thought this would happen to her. She thought she would live to at least 103, with her husband and 3 daughters.

But her world was turned upside down when she was diagnosed with cancer.

Antoinette Truglio Martin book is a heart wrenching and brave tale, that talks about her life before, during and after cancer.

She had the horrible, hard task of telling her family and friends. However when she was all talked out. Email became her friend.

Memories of her past life with her family resurface. As she mixes them in to give delightful tales. From times on the ice to time with her daughters.

This helps us to connect with Antoinette on a another level.A lovely lady with a great life who does not deserve to have Cancer.

This book follows Antionette journey. Journalling her battle with cancer and the journey she is on to stay alive.

I requested to read this book as my mother shared a similar story. My Mum went for her first mammogram and a tiny lump of cancer was found. She was very lucky. If my mum had left it the results in 3 years time could be devastating.

As Antoinette Truglio Martin family comes to terms with what is going on. Her book conveys a simple message – #Hugeveryoneyouknow. You never know when it is going to be the last time. So appreciate everything and everyone.

This book felt like being on an emotional rollercoaster – many ups and do. However learning all about the procedures and what happens when you are diagnosed with cancer was interesting. Everyone assumes straight away you go for chemotherapy. But that is not always the case.

A brave, inspiring and hear breaking story of Antoinette Truglio Martin of her life and living with cancer. I would recommend reading this book but have some tissues ready!

If you haven’t already done so please hug everyone you know

  1. Great review. This sounds like a real tear jerker. I was with my dad from the moment I found out he had 6 months to live to his last breath just 3 months later. He went the other way, he cut everyone off, refused to leave the house, eat, drink and ended up in hospital for most of his last months. What I have taken away from his cancer diagnosis and his death is that people should be considerate where they tell others their diagnosis, I was told on the phone whilst at a bus station on the way to pick my children up from school, it was horrendous getting that information in a public place. Also talk about afterwards as my family has fallen a part since my dad died.
