Thousands of women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and many more females and males are diagnosed with a variety of cancers each day.
This book describes the experiences and thoughts of the male partner of a woman diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer. There are many books written on the topic but they rarely if ever mention problems confronted by the husband or spouse.
The book was written primarily to provide insight for and hopefully strengthen and inspire other husbands/partners whose spouses have been stricken with breast cancer, a disease necessitating many modes of therapy, including chemotherapy and radiation.
Beautifully written by a world-renown physician, By Her Side, is a "must read." For the first time in a steadfast career of treating his own patients as a gynecologist and reproductive endocrinologist, author, Dr. Brian Cohen, was asking questions, seeking help and fearing the worst following the devastating diagnosis of his beloved wife, Rose's, diagnosis of breast cancer. As an international expert in infertility, these were all elements of his medical practice that he had witnessed many times with his own patients spanning a 35-year career. Expertly written to address issues from a spouse or significant other's perspective, By Her Side, is not only an outstanding medical resource for breast cancer, but also a useful guide answering questions such as survival tactics for a loving partner as they witness their loved one fighting for their life. Sensational and captivating...this is a medical journal as well as a love story.
