Product Description

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.
