This is the perfect gift for my friend who is a cancer survivor. She was diagnosed 5 years ago with STAGE 4 cancer. She told me that she kept thinking about how much she would do if she could only live to 45. This gift is part of her 45th birthday gift & also celebrates her 5th year of survival.

My Life- So Far...Perfect!

The product was fine. The problem I had is the company charged me shipping despite entering a discount code. That was reflected before I paid for it. I contacted them to get it reversed and they told me that they don't give free shipping. I was ready to order more gifts from them but this put a sour taste in my mouth.

        Comments about UncommonGoods My Life Story - So Far:

        I was searching for gifts for my parents and when I saw this book I thought it would be a beautiful way to preserve memories to pass down to future generations. I bought them each one and thought it would be wonderful for them to do together, reliving special memories and learning new things about each other. I look forward to reading them one day.
