Cancer for Two
Conquering A Cancer TogetherBook - 2006
David Bennett, from his own experience, tells us what we might expect at two levels after a diagnosis of cancer. He writes of the medical sequence and emotional consequences on him and his wife, Ann. We learn of the work of specialists and doctors in traditional medicine and of their teaching in complementary medicine. Having an informed insight into both the hard edge of surgery and a protective lifestyle for his future, David shares here, in a readable and entertaining style, what he learned. Through the remarkable openness of the book, we feel that we know David and Ann as friends and tensely long to know what happens next, right until the conclusion of the unexpectedly climactic final chapter. We understand and share their feelings, both in facing harsh reality and in moments of warm sentiment. Uniquely, Ann writes her own commentaries on the events described in the chapters. Her moving reflections on them help us to understand the role of carers and cancer's often-overlooked effects upon them.
