By now you've probably
read that I am the husband of a woman who was diagnosed with breast
cancer twenty years ago. Yes, she is very much alive and healthy today.
And both of us are emotionally and spiritually richer for the experience we lived through.
Some of the advice I offer in the next few pages is based on that
As the partner of a woman with breast cancer, you're probably in
as much pain and turmoil as she is. The coming days and months will
be challenging. You'll have to deal with your own feelings, as well
as give the woman you love the support she needs. A positive attitude
will help both of you get through the ordeal.
If you can step outside the "cancer" mindset, you will
see that this is an opportunity for you and the woman you love to
have one of the most rewarding experiences in your life.
