Eight years following the death of her husband from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Rachel reminisces on the love she lost and also the pain and lessons that came from his death as well.

Rachel found purpose through her pain in writing about her experience, which later became her book, and also through cancer advocacy.

In this episode, she shares the story of her husband's diagnosis and death two years later, as well as how she found her way to feeling better.

On top of the loss of her spouse, she would later have to come to terms with the fact that she will never have biological children and, also experienced a health setback herself, later being diagnosed with a disease of the colon.
