According to the AARP, more than 65 million people, or 29 percent of the U.S. population, currently provide care to an ill, disabled or aged family member or friend. The fact is, if we are not caregivers already, we likely know someone who is, or will be.

When the diagnosis of cancer is given to a loved one, you may find yourself in the role as caregiver. You want to help, but how? This story offers insight into the life of the author, who stood by his wife’s side as she confronted not one, but two very deadly episodes of cancer.

The strategies provided in this touching book will benefit any new or even veteran caregiver, as well as patients, family members, friends, and members of the medical community that are wondering what they should know and do if, or when, personally confronted with a loved one or friend with a debilitating illness or injury.

Rob Harris is the author of the book – We’re In This Together: A Caregiver’s Story to help those in need.  The book is a fast-paced, gripping, and heartwarming story of his wife’s two battles with cancer, his role as a caregiver, and the lessons he learned along the way.

We’re In This Together: A Caregiver’s Story provides 70 Caregiver Tips learned during the author’s journey as a caregiver, including:

  1. Receiving the news: How do I manage my emotions and still be supportive?
  2. Understanding diagnoses and treatments: Tracking the details that matter.
  3. Spending time in the hospital: How the new “normal” can be inspiring and even fun.
  4. Becoming the great communicator: Sharing the news with friends and family.
  5. Handling setbacks and overcoming obstacles: Finding the good in “every stinkin’ day.”
  6. Taking care of yourself: Balancing the demands of caregiving with your own personal needs.

 

The book has been endorsed by celebrities, such as Leeza Gibbons, and many noteworthy doctors and oncologists. To quote Dr. Michael Fisch, MPH, FACP, FAAHPM, chair, Department of General Oncology, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX. “I am so impressed with this book! My vision is that this book would be a valuable addition to medical school and nursing school curriculum, serving as a trigger to help health professionals, patients, and caregivers alike understand what person-centered care really means.

Rob’s wife’s first bout of cancer was a non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. The author states that $1.00 of every print book sale will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to help in their efforts to eradicate blood cancers.
