This is not just another cancer story. While it does describe the process of diagnosis and surgery, chemo and radiation, this isn’t the essential message. This is about facing the threat of terminal illness every day for ten years and more, about the emotional toll on family, career and marriage. It’s about finding a balance between living for medication and medicating to live. Alternately tender and brutal, angry and jubilant, this honest, little book is at heart a love story between two people hoping only to grow old together.
