    I needed this book a few years back. I have been the primary care giver to my MIL the last 2 years as she fought cancer. I have had to learn the ropes on my own... This book would have been great. I am going to get it and share it. I am a avid vol. for the ACS locally and just know more people would get this book if they knew about it...

  1. I completely agree with you, the book was very comforting and informative.
