Spring 2024 Book Release “Living with Cancer, a CareGivers Journey©

My writing journey is well underway! Watch for my new book, Living with Cancer, a CareGivers Journey© to be available in the spring of 2024. The goal of this project is to provide insights and resources that will lead the reader to be a more educated cancer patient and a more effective cancer caregiver. It has been a 32-year journey that has taken us to 5 countries and 3 U.S. states. Over the years, my husband and I have had to find oncologists wherever we lived.

Your Story is Important

We invite cancer caregivers/families to send us your story of how you have coped with your loved one’s cancer diagnosis and treatment. And, please offer your own ‘advice’ and suggestions for what others can do to help.

All of your stories are important to us, and may be selected for future newsletters, the  Book, and/or on our website. We will not include your name unless we have your written permission.
