About this title

Synopsis:

Scared. Shocked. Depressed. These words describe the more than one million women worldwide who are diag nosed with breast cancer every year. But they also apply to the husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and friends to whom cancer sufferers turn for support. Stand by Her is written to help these men be the very best supporters they can be, com bining solid practical advice with emotional guidance based both on the author’s personal experience and his extensive research.

Offering insight into medical, psychological, family, sexual, and financial issues.

The book also provides an exhaustive section of print, online, and other resources for patients and caregivers.

One day the war against breast cancer will be won. Until then, women need their men to help them fight. This landmark book will help any man overcome the fear and frustration of dealing with the disease, and arm him with the knowledge and resources he needs to Stand by Her.
