Reduce your stress and restore your hope

268 Pages of Hope and Comfort

Cancer diagnosis for you or someone you care about?

It happened to us and and we got through it with hard work and a lot of humor.

You can too!

This is a scary time, no doubt about it

If you're like we were, you are wondering:

"What will happen?"

"What is the treatment going to be like?"

"How will I deal with all of those new medical terms?"

"Will my spouse leave me?"

"How will I find time to do my normal stuff in addition to treatment?"

"How do I deal with all of the people that want to help?"

"Is what I'm feeling normal?"

I’m GLAD you found me

...because I can help you get through it.

I can’t give you medical advice because I’m not a doctor.

I can’t tell you what is going to happen to you because I’m not a fortune teller.

But I can help you cope, because I went through it with my wife Chris when she had breast cancer. And then again when it came back. And then again when it came back a second time. And even once more after that! (She is doing fine now.)

Needless to say, I learned a lot during those four bouts with breast cancer.

Now I can help you by sharing our story in "Cancer for Two: An Inspiring True Story and Guide for Cancer Patients and Their Partners"

Our story will help you with any type of cancer

It seems weird that our story can help you, doesn’t it?  Well, it can. Even though our experience was with breast cancer, what we went through applies to all types of cancer.

“Just a quick note to let you know that I read 'Cancer
for Two' recently and could not put it down. I have
metastatic colon cancer in the lung so I could relate
to a lot of the experiences you two went through.”

S. McIntyre, Cancer Patient

"Cancer for Two" will:

  • Reassure you that you are not alone - what you're feeling is normal.

You will find that a surprising number of things that are happening to you also happened to us. The things your friends say and do, the feelings and frustrations we had, the problems we encountered… the letters I get tell me how helpful it was to identify with someone else.

“Your book has really helped me and let me know what I am feeling is not weird. Thank you for letting me know I am normal.”

  • Give you a scenario - become comfortable with prospects for the future.

When we got the diagnosis, one of my first thoughts was “What’s going to happen?” Obviously I can’t tell you what will happen in your situation, but learning what happened to us will help you understand our course of treatment, which will calm you until you learn what yours is going to be.

“["Cancer for Two"] is factual and current and closely relates to what we are going through right now. We were looking for hope and encouragement, along with facts; we found all that and more."

Jo Epperson, Cancer Patient

  • Help you deal with other people - reduce the stress caused by well-meaning people.

What do you do when people:

  • say inappropriate things?
  • want to help by doing things you don't want them to do?
  • want to help too much?
  • won’t take “no” for an answer?

  • Empower you with specific coping strategies - you find hope when you know how to help yourself.

For example, it is important to laugh. LAUGH?? What’s funny about cancer? Nothing… but there is humor in some of the situations you find yourself in because of the cancer. You will be surprised how funny we managed to be in spite of our situation. You will laugh out loud, and that’s a promise!

Okay, laughing was an easy one… how about this? 

During Chris’s chemo we got a postcard from a friend on vacation in Tahiti. We decided to go there when her treatment was over and guess what? That gave us hope. That’s when we learned how important it is to have something to look forward to. It doesn’t have to be as fancy as a tropical vacation though; it can be something as simple as going to the movies on Thursday night.

"One thing Dave said that I have adopted myself...
'don't go there, till you get there'...very profound!! 
I take it with me everywhere!"

  • Provide the caregiver's perspective - new understanding of the caregiver's feelings and responsibilities.

It is surprising how many letters I get that say, "Now I understand what my husband is going through."

“I can't thank you enough for this book. Not only is it completely full of courage, it has helped my ‘freaked-out’ husband stop and see that he needs and wants, most of all, to be there right at my side.”

Gwynith Brennan, Cancer Patient

  • Bring cancer couples closer together - each of your concerns and feelings  will be better understood by the other.

"Cancer for Two" saved a marriage. Surprised? I was too! 

"I had to deliver a cancer diagnosis to a couple in my practice with a rocky marriage. I gave them a copy of your book; the next time they were in my office they couldn't keep their hands off each other!  When I asked them what made the difference, they said, 'Cancer for Two!'"

  • Reveal some surprising insights - avoid unnecessary worry and stress

Naturally, one of our first questions was, “How serious is this; is she going to die?” 

They gave us the “five-year survival rates,” which are statistics of patients in a similar situation that have survived at least 5 years. We were shocked:  based on those numbers, Chris only had a 50% to 60% chance of surviving 5 years.

Here is the surprising insight: “five-year survival rates” are too low!

Cancer is not the killer it used to be because advances are constantly being made in medical science that improve the odds.

Advances are made so rapidly, in fact, that the “5-year survival rate” figures that we all cling to are too low because they are based on 5-year old medicine.

Had you considered that? Patients who survived 5-years had the majority of their treatment at least 5 years ago. Undoubtedly medical technology has improved, probably significantly, since then.

Result: we were told (by another doctor) that, considering medical advances, Chris’s odds of survival were more like 80% instead of 50% to 60%. That’s a big difference! (By the way, now she is 6 years out and going strong.)

"It sounds like you and Chris did everything right, and your insights are wonderful."

  • Show the complete picture - prepare you for how it feels

This isn't just a "this-is-what-happened-to-us" book. Sure, I describe what happened; but also how it felt and what we did to handle it that you can do too.

 “You've found a way to put heart and humor into braving the cancer diagnosis and recovery. It's not sugarcoated – it’s the real deal.”
