On November 8 2004, his 48th birthday, my husband Philip Morrow was diagnosed with cancer. Five months later, on April 12 2005, he took his last breath in my arms. It was Phil's deep desire to write a book about his journey and to inspire others about the power of hope and faith. On the final day of his life after having been told that he had only days to live Phil said to me, "Tarn, don't forget to bring in my journal tomorrow as this will be good for my book." Within days of Phil's passing, I had a deep knowing to write his book for him and there I began to expand my personal love and passion of writing to the world around me. Another personal journey for me had begun. Part one of "Unplanned Journey; A Triumph in Life and Death," tells the story of Phil's journey and his extraordinary belief in living his life on his terms and his personal process. Part two tells the story of my own journey from the time of Phil's passing to just after his first anniversary. I invite the reader to walk beside me as I learn how to find meaning from my experience and a purpose in my life when at times there appeared to be none.
