Cancer A 9 Year Struggle by Tom Cooney Jr.

Tom and Irene created the best road to travel through 9 years of 4th stage cancer treatments including 6 major surgeries, an extraordinary 175 chemotherapies, clinical trials and many other procedures. With probable life expectancy at 2-3 years initially, Irene chose to undergo aggressive regimens providing optimal outcomes even though side effects would be worse than common protocols. Between treatments, they traveled extensively always urging the medical team to focus on quantity. Tom and Irene, themselves, would concentrate on providing quality. Tom Cooney Jr. takes you along with him as Irene braves the rugged path before her.

Love shows no boundaries in this beautiful story of a 4th stage cancer patient who would endure years of hospital stays, countless operations, over 175 chemo treatments, swallowed thousands of pills and always had the attitude “I want quantity of life not quality no matter what it takes”. Hats off to you, Irene and your adoring caregiver, Tom. You did just that for 9 long years. With all her struggles she still appreciated the value of living. Don & Pat McGee

"I just read the book Tom. It is absolutely WONDERFUL! I sent you a personal message on your personal page because that was the first page I discovered. By the way, this is from Chrissie...the funeral home secretary. This book is truly the most beautiful true love story that I have ever read. Your writing style is perfect and the parts taken from Irene's journal entries make it very personal and heartfelt. I shed tears and I laughed too! Thank you again for sharing "your" Irene with all of us! I encourage EVERYONE to read this love story whether or not you or someone you love has cancer."
