Synopsis: While fighting an aggressive brain tumor, Deirdre Allen Timmons must care for her mother who has advanced Alzheimer's, raise her teenage daughter, and help her husband chase a new dream--opening a barbecue restaurant. Her greatest defense is her sense of humor in this tender memoir chronicling life struggles that are often tragic--but can still be very funny.
Readers can grab a tissue and take a ride as one batty broad battles her way through the tragicomic trials of her most perilous adventure yet--brain cancer.
