  • "Cards for Brianna"

    Mom will love the story behind this book and the touching letters inside. When 36-year-old Heather McManamy’s breast cancer diagnosis went from Stage II to terminal, her thoughts immediately went to her 4-year-old daughter Brianna and all the moments she would miss in her life. So Heather bought a stack of greeting cards, and began writing notes to Brianna for the future milestones she wouldn’t live to see. That stack grew to include 70 cards and became the basis for the book, "Cards for Brianna: A Mom’s Messages of Living, Laughing, and Loving as Time Is Running Out," which Heather wrote shortly before she died last December.
