That Julie Yip-Williams survived infancy was a miracle. Born blind in Vietnam, she narrowly escaped euthanasia. Her family fled their country’s political upheaval in the late 1970s, and in America a surgeon at UCLA gave Julie partial sight. She became a Harvard-educated lawyer with a husband, two little girls, and a life that once seemed impossible. Then, at thirty-seven, she was diagnosed with terminal metastatic colon cancer, and a different journey began. With humor, bracing honesty, and the cleansing power of well-deployed anger, Julie set the stage for her lasting legacy and one final miracle: the story of her life.
