"It’s almost unprecedented to have this type of regression with the currently approved therapy."
-From TIME Magazine's March 2015 article featuring MaryAnn Anselmo

In 2012, MaryAnn Anselmo was at the height of her career, headlining at Chico’s House of Jazz—a premiere venue in New Jersey for jazz singers. It was a sold-out show. The love of her life and husband, Joe, was by her side when she brought the house down. Her dreams were becoming a reality. Two days later she lost everything including the will to live when their son Dustin died unexpectedly. 

A month later, MaryAnn and her father, Artie, suffered a devastating car accident. Dad was going to be okay, but she shattered dozens of bones, and had a string of strokes that resulted in a coma. This ultimately left her without the use of her left vocal cord. 

With Joe’s love and constant support, she worked hard to recover, even starting from scratch with her old vocal coach. MaryAnn was determined to sing again. Then in mid-November of 2013, she was given eighteen months to live, diagnosed with a high-grade glioblastoma—a later stage brain tumor. 

How is this possible?
Why me?
Why us?


Through Fire and Rain is a story of deep loss and salvation found through love, prayer, and faith in the future of medicine. “Not my girl. Cancer will not win.” Joe uttered as he watched his wife sleep. They had decided to stop chemotherapy; it was going to kill her faster than the tumor. They had made it through the fire, he thought. They had survived so much. This is just a little rain…. And he got to work, studying everything, and calling doctors worldwide to learn more about genomic sequencing, their last hope.

Enjoyed the book tremendously!
I found this book very moving and inspirational. I read it in 2 days - I started and couldn't put it down. I can't even image going through what MaryAnn & Joe endured - really puts life into perspective. I highly recommend reading this book not only does it give you an appreciation for life but it's also an eye opener to question medical decisions. Joe did his research and in return saved the love of his life.

Superwoman......to be admired, loved, and adored
With all the ups and downs, and challenges this woman has faced, one would feel some kind of bitterness and resentment? Not Maryanne. She is the most upbeat and positive individual you will ever come across.

Couldn't get enough of her warm heart and courage.

A sweet read...
A Beautiful and touching story about never underestimating the power of love, perseverance, and determination. For a family to be able to seek out the positive through their own personal, and devastating tragedies is truly inspiring. I read this entire book in one sitting.

This story has touched my heart, and I am looking forward to the sequel! I hope Joe and Maryann can finally breath a little...they deserve it. Well done!

Just read it.
I recently read Through Fire and Rain by MaryAnn and Joseph Anselmo. It is the recount of a married couple who experiences some real life struggles over several years. This is not another "feel good" story about two people who overcome. It is an example of taking charge of your life when when it is up to you to fix the problem when no one seems to have complete answers.

The Anselmos demonstrate a resourceful and innovative attitude in dealing with true life-threatening issues. They remove most excuses for when things "are not going well." Their positive take charge attitude made me feel ashamed for ever having complained. You will be inspired to not allow circumstances to dictate your outlook on life. Additionally, the book includes numerous resources for those wishing to research questions about similar health problems. Read it.

Inspiring
What an incredible woman. Her resolve and manner of handling anything that came her way was inspiring to read. Difficult to read due to the circumstances of what this wonderful lady and loved ones had to endure, but well worth the read.

Thanks to NetGalley, the author and the publisher for the ARC of this book in return for my honest review.

Very Informative
Hearing the words "brain cancer" is like saying you have a death sentence. After reading this book, I realize that it doesn't have to mean that. Joe is an amazing man who moved heaven and earth for his wife. Congratulations on being cancer-free and thank you for the information. God willing, I'll never have a reason to use it, but it's good to know there are options available.

Truly amazing how they were able to find some good in the "why this all happened"
Not only was the book inspiring, but it opened up my eyes that you sometimes have to take matters into your own hands and do lots of research. I loved the way the book was written with each chapter from a different perspective on what was happening to Joe and MaryAnn. Truly amazing how they were able to find some good in the "why this all happened"

Read it in one evening - couldn't put it down. I felt the love flowing from beginning to end! It's much more than a good read. It's a great lesson about faith, courage and perseverance - plus the info about medical procedures is most helpful for the average person. Thank you for sharing your entire path - it brought both tears and smiles. We wish you the best for your continued good health.

A story of how quickly life can change in ways which many of us could never imagine.
The authors have graciously allowed the reader into their world by sharing their story of strength, courage, resilience, faith, and love. A story of how quickly life can change in ways which many of us could never imagine. Their story made me smile, made me cry, gave me hope. If you need a good book to help provide the courage you need to tackle a tough time in your life or if you need to be reminded to be grateful and stop “sweating the small stuff”, I recommend reading “through fire and rain”. You will not be disappointed. In fact, you may even look at life a little differently.
In addition, there is information and links provided on precision medicine which anyone battling cancer should be made aware of.

Through Fire and Rain is one of the most inspirational books I've ever read.
Through Fire and Rain is one of the most inspirational books I've ever read. A truly amazing story of love, faith, and the art of never giving up.
MaryAnn Anselmo is a hero in every way. Everyone should read this book. Her courage is unstoppable and her love for her mother, father, her beautiful son and and her true love Joseph is moving. Now take everything I just said about MaryAnn and apply to Joseph Anselmo. This is a man who sets an example of love and devotion for everyone to learn from. Once you start reading this book you won't want to put it down until you finish it. The help, guidance and websites they gracefully give to all at the end of the book can save many lives. All that incredible time and research gifted. When I wake up tomorrow I'll see the world differently. My heart just got a reset. "Let's make something of every day we have"

Read it and you will be amazed at the strength of the human spirit and how true love and the passion for living can carry one
A wonderful book about courage, love, and tenacity. This couple went through so many ups and downs and just kept fighting. They are amazing...both of them. Read it and you will be amazed at the strength of the human spirit and how true love and the passion for living can carry one forward. Great book and check out MaryAnn's CD as well. She is a very talented jazz singer and after all life has thrown at her, she is finally able to sing again.

This is a wonderfully inspirational story.
This is a wonderfully inspirational story. Most people who had experienced two very disturbing incidents in their life would think that brain cancer was the ultimate punishment. The family pulled together and triumphed. This story should be required reading for anyone diagnosed with frightening condition. A chapter of advice will be invaluable to a newly diagnosed patient. I am more than.ten years I.n.remission after oral cancer surgery and refused radiation.
