Review by: Tina Dean on Feb. 05, 2014 :
As a cancer survivor myself and a soon to be caregiver, for my husband who has cancer, I truly appreciate Ken's open and honest personal insight of going through cancer treatment. Ken's book has also been a powerful resource tool for our daughter, who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and her husband who is the caregiver. Together as a couple of two beautiful young daughters, they will create their very own personal cancer journey. I strongly encourage everyone to read this book. Even if you do not have cancer personally, reading this book will prepare you for the day you desire to encourage someone who does have cancer.

Review by: Craig Rice on July 21, 2013 :
As a cancer survivor and having been the support person for my spouse that survived cancer, I wish that I had had this book to read to help me through the experience. Even though neither cancer we have lived through was breast cancer (Hodgkin's disease and colon cancer) Ken's insight and thoughtfulness towards the role of the caregiver is a help for any couple going through the challenge of cancer treatment. My partner ended up being totally overwhelmed by her role as a caregiver and as a result my journey was harder than it could have been if she had the chance to read this book after my cancer had been diagnosed. I was my partner's caregiver 13 years after my last treatment and I tried to do everything. Ken's book could have helped me maintain a more sane approach that would have been better for both my partner and I. This is a must-read for anyone with a partner that has just been diagnosed with cancer.

Review by: Pam Wyess on June 24, 2013 :
Ken’s open, honest, and down-to-earth writing brings home the reality of dealing with breast cancer from the spouse’s side. His story blends humor, facts, and raw emotion in a way that that will help others who suddenly find themselves in caregiver mode. He shares practical tips for transitioning to the ‘new normal’ mix of doctor appointments, activity restrictions, and day-to-day life changes. In addition, he shares how he maneuvered through the wide range of emotions caregivers face. This is a must-read for any family going through a health challenge—and anyone who wants to see faith and love at work.
