As an oncology counselor, Debbie Church has worked with hundreds of cancer patients. Through her own experience with this disease, she gained a greater understanding of cancer’s impact on individuals and families. Her husband, Dick, shares a man’s perspective on entering the mysterious worlds of gynecology and oncology. A minister and an experienced mountain climber, he compares Debbie’s battle with cancer to the difficulties, dangers, and triumphs of climbing a mountain.

The ways spouses respond to cancer’s intrusion in their lives and advice for couples. Cancer’s impact on sexual intimacy. Advice for counseling kids of different ages when a parent has cancer. Confronting difficult questions about faith, death, and God. Cancer survivors, caregivers, and others whose lives have been touched by cancer in any form will laugh and cry with Dick and Debbie, while gaining new insight, encouragement, and hope for their own journey.
