Overview

Cancer kills but it can't kill love.
When Terri Cotton was diagnosed with leukemia, cancer took over her life and her marriage. Practically newlyweds, she and husband Richard had to deal with the devastating news that Terri might have less than seven years to live.
Their battle began. They could do nothing -- from taking trips to making decisions -- without considering the cancer.
When leukemia morphed into a more deadly form of cancer - and a stem cell transplant became Terri's only hope - she and her husband began a quest that took them so far from normal the only way to endure was with a sense of humor.
This is the story of Terri's courageous journey and her death. It is also the story of her life, and the story of the love Terri and Richard shared for far too brief a moment in time.
And it's the story of how that love lives on.

Editorial Reviews

Peggy Webb
“Then Came Cancer: A Love Story is the chronicle of battling cancer, of a marriage, of love. But most of all, it's unforgettable! Writing with a raw honesty that is his hallmark and with a journalist's eye for detail, C. Richard Cotton also brings a loving husband's heart to the page. He tempers heartbreak with humor, horror with hope, loss with love. The result is a beautiful, powerful story, a Must Read!" Peggy Webb a.k.a. Anna Michaels author of The Tender Mercy of Roses

Meet the Author

C. Richard Cotton was born on a U.S. Army post in South Carolina. He spent the next 18 years following his father from assignment to assignment, seeing much of Europe and most of the United States.
While living in Denmark, he became an avid reader, partly because of long, cold winters when outside activities were curtailed, partly because reading English-language books were a way to connect to the States and partly because Danish television was on only a couple hours a day. "The Flintstones" and "Perry Mason" were the only American shows broadcast.
After departing college, without a degree, Richard was a Volkswagen mechanic, bartender and worked numerous other vocations before settling into carpentry. Moonlighting as a longshoreman on the Mississippi River south of Baton Rouge, he was injured in 1985 and couldn't work a couple months.
He began writing stories for local magazines and newspapers during that time. Today, thousands of articles and thousands of photos later, he has penned his first book, "Then Came Cancer: A Love Story."
Richard lives today in Saltillo, Mississippi, home for the past 17 years. Most of his five children and two grandchildren live nearby. He is working on his next book, to be announced at a later date.
