A mother shares the lessons she learned from her teenage son. From the journal she kept during her son's 19-month battle with cancer, she discovered a cherished gift in the midst of heartache. He fought DSRCT for seven seasons. He left too soon but did not leave her empty handed. The son gave his mother lessons on living while he was dying. Through his wit, wisdom, and charm, he provided daily anecdotes for his mother's journal. From this she poignantly tells her son's story while teaching his lessons.
