Don't Bet Against Me!
Beating the Odds Against Breast Cancer and in LifeBook - 2007
A shy, small-town girl from Kiln, Mississippi, Deanna is the wife of Brett Favre, the NFL's only three-time MVP. She shared in a football player's many problems, from injury to painkiller abuse, but in October 2004, her younger brother was killed in an ATV accident. Then, four days later--still reeling from the loss--Deanna was diagnosed with breast cancer. In this candid and inspirational memoir, she shares the triumphs and the tragedies of a life lived both behind the scenes and on center stage. From her years as a single mom and her high-profile marriage to Brett, to her highly publicized battle with breast cancer and the work she is currently doing through the Deanna Favre HOPE Foundation, Deanna's story is living testament that with faith, hope, and love, ordinary people can overcome even the most extraordinary circumstances.--From publisher description.
