The actress known for her roles as Mrs. Barney Miller and as Brook Shield's grandmother on television candidly discusses her battle with colon cancer and her colostomy with resolute optimism and a sense of acceptance

Blackwell North Amer
Everything was going swimmingly in the life of actress Barbara Barrie: a wonderful career that had carried her around the world, a talented husband, and two interesting, devoted children. Even better, the month of April 1994 found her in Charleston, South Carolina, filming Scarlett and enjoying the ambiance of that historic city.
So why was this woman who could play three sets of doubles suddenly falling down in her hotel room? And whose pasty face was that, peering at her from the dresser mirror? When the actress received the diagnosis of colorectal cancer, she knew that this was the greatest crisis she and her family would face. But it also - as we see in the pages of this candid memoir - becomes an adventure that, through courage and humor, brings new joys and a greater appreciation to her life.
