Don't Bet Against Me!...Review

About the book:
The wife of Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre, Deanna was inadvertently thrust into the spotlight when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004. Now cancer-free, Deanna is one of breast cancer’s leading activists, speaking and raising financial support for women who are "medically underserved" (uninsured or under-insured). Deanna’s story shares the role her faith has played in her life--from her years as a single mom and her high profile marriage to Brett, to her battle with breast cancer and the work she is currently doing through the HOPE Foundation. Includes 24 pages of color photos, a foreword by Brett Favre, and an afterword by Brittany & Breleigh Favre.

This happened to be on the shelf near the checkout counter at the library and looked interesting. It's a quick read, but a good one. I enjoyed it. It's autobiographical about her life with Brett Favre, but also about her experience with breast cancer.

She's a very Christian person, and so there are many biblical examples and scriptures used in regards to faith, hope and enduring trials. I didn't mind that so much, others might.

It's a phenomenal book for someone who has breast cancer. There is so much information about treatment and dealing with the situation.

A good, easy read.

Thanks to my local library for having a copy I could borrow.  You can purchase your own copy here.
