I am just a man. Never has this been clarified more readily than with my wife's ordeal with breast cancer. This book is written from a husband's view. I was ill-prepared emotionally and intellectually for the circumstances we faced. Debbie had been engaged in this seemingly fruitless battle with breast cancer for five years. The life threatening asthma was brought on by surgical decisions and silicone gel implants. This causation is my own opinion, but it is supported by observation, anecdotal evidence, and unskilled, but experiential, analysis. The cancer appeared in early January of 1990, a scant three months after our wedding in October 1989. We trudged forth in battle together; confronted the dragon with courage and perseverance; lost most of the skirmishes; our valor was never questioned; and on this 21std day of 1996, I had no idea how long it would be before my wife would be consumed by the dragon. Husbands need to read this book.
