In April 1998, while out of the country on business, I received a phone call from my wife telling me she found a lump in her breast and they were going to operate. Within 24 hours, we were to learn she had breast cancer. Not only would her life change, so would mine as her husband. Everyone has a dark secret, and CONQUERING CANCER is mine.
My wife was slowly dying and I was forced to watch. In CONQUERING CANCER , I tell of my wife’s near-death experience with breast cancer and examine its assault on love and effect on me. “The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing,” Groucho Marx begins. “If you can fake that, you’ve got it made.” When we can’t laugh, we cry, and we when we love, we do both. In life, everyone faces difficult challenges. No matter how long and hard the journey, Love is worth whatever it takes.
