A shocking diagnosis of ovarian cancer at thirty-one forces Erin to question her very existence and life purpose. Her dance with cancer inspires her to bare her soul through her journals which guide her to teach and share with others. Her research, studies, and practical experiences are revealed in detail to enable everyone to learn what she learns, especially about "listening to your body" Erin chronicles her experiences with conventional and alternative healing and wellness treatments and tells us what works for her and what doesn't. As Erin's body begins to deteriorate, she shares the last part of her journey and faces the reality of dying. Her honesty and courage shine through even when choosing how and when to die. Part Two shares deeply revealing stories from others about Erin's process after death and how she 'bridges' the two worlds through metaphysical forms of communication. As interviews with family and friends complete the circle, Erin leaves us with a page of insights: What would Erin say?
