When catastrophic illness strikes, someone close to the
patient—a spouse, child, grandchild, or close friend—inevitably
joins that patient on the arduous journey through treatment and
recovery. Surprisingly, health-care professionals largely
acknowledge that personal caregivers have more influence over the
patient’s experience in the short and long term than any medical
professional. That means that if you find yourself in the role of
caregiver, you are—or can be—one of the greatest weapons in your
loved one’s fight against cancer.
Now Dr. Michael S. Barry shows you how to create moments filled
with positive energy, hope, abundant love, occasional laughter, and
people (including you) who sparkle with a life-giving, joyful
attitude, even amidst grave illness.
