One Hundred and Twenty-six Days: The Unthinkable Journey is a deeply emotional, nonfiction account by first-time author Holly Richard about how life can radically change in the blink of an eye. Glimpses of light and hope follow and at a critical juncture, the story becomes reflective as the author challenges her faith while looking back on events and sharing insights and a deeper self-examination of how to somehow survive a broken heart.

Holly Richard began her career in the disability field in the early 1990s and has served in executive leadership roles for several nonprofits in North Carolina for over 20 years. In 2012, she became President and CEO of tlc, (formerly the Tammy Lynn Center) in Raleigh. After Holly’s son Derek passed away from Glioblastoma in April 2019 at the age of 28, she stepped away from tlc in November of that year to deal with the devastating loss of her son and to be with family as they began their grief journey. Holly spent three long years writing a book about the death of her son and the grief that followed, and became a first-time author, publishing her book, One Hundred and Twenty-Six Days, The Unthinkable Journey in November 2021. Holly was recently appointed to the Advisory Board of the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke Hospital in Durham where her son received treatment. Holly dedicates her time and service to advance brain cancer research and funding at the state and national level while also helping people who have experienced the unimaginable and who are navigating their grief journey.
