Publisher's Summary

When Mary Potter Kenyon's husband David was diagnosed with cancer she searched libraries and bookstores for books on cancer and the caregiving experience. What she discovered was a plethora of technical and medically-oriented books or those written by a caregiver whose loved one had died, a scenario she refused to contemplate. While serving as David's companion during Wednesday chemotherapy treatments, Mary began journaling about their experience as a couple and parents of young children as they navigated the labyrinth of cancer.

It soon dawned on her that she was writing the very book she had searched for upon David's diagnosis: one that goes beyond the cancer experience to give hope and inspiration to the reader. Chemo-Therapist: How Cancer Cured a Marriage is much more than a memoir of caregiving through cancer. It is a moving testimonial of a love renewed by the shared experience of a life threatening illness.

"Initially, after David's diagnosis, I would cringe when I read books or articles by cancer survivors who stated that cancer had been a gift in their lives. How could all that David endured be viewed as a gift? The invasive surgery, the weeks of chemotherapy and radiation: a gift?

Yet, after the cancer, David would often reach for my hand and say, "If it is cancer that is responsible for our new relationship, then it was all worth it." And I'd reluctantly agree that cancer had been a gift in our lives."

    "Second listen"

    Second time listening because I am following with her sequel about the grief journey.
    I am a former oncology nurse who is now a hospice nurse and just journeyed with my friend through the end of a 13 year cancer battle. There is something here for anyone touched by cancer.
