You Can't Take it with You Summary

You Can't Take it with You by Jane Tomlinson

In January 2005 Jane and Mike Tomlinson announced that they had reached their GBP1 million charity fund-raising target. In YOU CAN'T TAKE IT WITH YOU, the Tomlinsons explain how they achieved that incredible goal, and why Jane, who has a terminal cancer diagnosis, chose to put her long-suffering body through such difficult experiences. The book takes us from Jane and her brother Luke's cycle ride from John O'Groats to Lands End with Jane stopping twice for chemotherapy en route, on to her incredible ride with Luke from Rome to Leeds and then out to Florida for the full Ironman triathlon. This last challenge is almost inconceivable to the average person involving as it does a 2.5-mile swim, a 112-mile cycle and then a full marathon run. Battling severe pain, Jane completed the course in 15 hours and 48 minutes. This summer Jane cycled from San Francisco to New York, an epic 6,700-kilometre journey that took her to breathtaking altitudes and through searing heat. But Jane's ultimate goals are rather more straight-forward. She would simply like to live long enough to see her daughters and young son grow towards independence and to experience every day to its utmost.
