If "Sixtyfive Roses: A Sister's Memoir" was about a boatload of roses, it would have been a happier story. Sadly, it's about a sister coping with her sibling's fate with cystic fibrosis. Sixtyfive roses was what her childhood understood of the disease that was going to take her sister away far too soon. The chain of events eventually led to the founding of the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis foundation. A tale that is heart wrenching alongside Heart warming, "Sixtyfive Roses" is a must for anyone with a relative who is dealing with such an illness.
