The pages that follow are the beginning excerpts from my memoir, Monster Love, a moving account of my journey through a family member's rare terminal illness. At four months old my little brother was put in Hospice care and given a year to live. Monster Love follows the time that follows, performing a sprint to answer the question that torments the protagonist: what does it mean to love a dying baby? The book offers up an inspiring answer to that question. Throughout all obstacles, the bond a family shares can beat almost anything life throws at them, for love does - indeed - conquer all.
