Moving, heartbreaking, morbidly wry and ultimately uplifting, this book captures the everyday struggles of living with and loving someone fighting for his life when as a successful psychologist, writer, husband, and father of two adult sons - was diagnosed with stage 4, non-Hodgkin lymphoma and given a 25 per cent chance of survival. In the blink of an eye, his world shattered. Faced with the news, his family all had to cope with their own, unique challenges. Here, in beautifully crafted alternating chapters, all four family members tell the story of their first year with cancer, avoiding platitudes and easy answers in favor of the raw honesty of a family coping with disease.
