About this ebook

*Now a 2021 RWA Vivian Finalist in Mainstream Fiction*


Marry the love of my life.

Become a mother.

Write a book.


Number one was complete. I was well on my way to checking off goals two and three, before a cancer diagnosis derailed my plans.


A story meant to chronicle the journey of impending motherhood with wit, became a brutally honest memoir of living life to the fullest.


Make every breath count.


When finally confronted with the knowledge the cancer is terminal, I search for a way to accomplish all the things I wanted to do within my lifetime... when I don’t have a lifetime left.


Every Last Drop is the heartfelt, unflinching, and original story of how when faced with the hardest truth, we finally learn how far we will go to discover who we are before it’s too late.

Facing death on her own terms. That’s Tessa’s greatest wish. It used to be to marry the love of her life, have a baby and write a book. Then at 26, she is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and given months to live. Every Last Drop is the story of the slow ending of a life and it is brilliant, tragic, discussion worthy and heartbreaking. As Tessa learns that the weeks leading to her inevitable death will be punctuated by seizures, blindness and paralysis, she begins to research Death with Dignity, a law that allows a dying patient to commit suicide at a time of his or her choosing. There is a lot of information here and it is well organized and thought provoking. But the real story is Tessa’s journey and the reactions of her father, husband Kyle and sister Elly. This is a beautiful, beautiful book. And it is dedicated to Brittany Maynard, the young California woman who inspired this story. Many thanks to NetGalley, Sarah Robinson Books and Sarah Robinson for this ARC.

This book was very emotional. It had some laughing parts and some crying parts. Overall it was a really good book. It really hit home for me on 2 different levels. I also have experienced miscarriage (3 to be exact) and I took care of my boyfriend's mom in her last 2 months of life before she passed away from cancer(and none of us(me or her family) even knew she was terminal). I love this book though, it is very beautifully written. Good job Sarah! ❤️

This book is amazing. Definitely quite the emotional roller coaster. Make sure to have tissues handy for all the tears you’ll shed. Tessa and Kyle are #goals! And Cancer affects so many people, that this book’s challenges and turmoil should resonate somehow. Sensational read and would highly recommend!
