‘Nine Days’ By Lisa Knabe

One night you take your mother to the movies, the next night you discover she has days to live; nine days as it turned out. This story is an autobiographical attempt to relay not only what happened, but also to shed some light on a daughter’s fight to grasp the unimaginable and cope with a life shattering, soul crushing tragedy. Anyone who has suffered loss will relate, and others may gain some insight on the inevitable.
