Overview

A beautifully told memoir by a husband who learns on his third wedding anniversary that his wife has advanced breast cancer. Doctors give her just months to live, which stretches to seven years. She's able to watch her only child grow up and balances dance recitals and PTA meetings with one therapy after another, including bone marrow harvesting. While she manages the disease, her husband manages the "zoo" of the medical system: the callous doctors and twisted logic of insurance companies. Through it all, his mantra becomes "you'll live to be 100," while his wife accepts that she will not. Especially good for any couple struggling with terminal cancer.
