"Nan, look at this!" So begins this account of one couple’s battle with a rare and deadly form of cancer. One moment Barry was a healthy, active man in the prime of his life; the next, he was a terrified, helpless patient.

Anyone who has had cancer, who has been a caregiver, or who has had a friend or loved one receive this diagnosis will be drawn to this story. During the four years of Barry’s treatment, there was much that changed for this couple. They met health care professionals they call “angels.” They discovered just how much love and support their family, friends, and community offer. And they found themselves on a completely unexpected spiritual path. This book explores in a loving, real, and powerful way how their lives changed and how they confronted each challenge they encountered with dignity, perseverance, and courage.
