When Your Wife/Partner Has Cancer: A Husband's Perspective
Marc Silver, author of Breast Cancer Husband; How to Help Your Wife (and Yourself) Through Diagnosis, Treatment and Beyond, talks openly about being a husband/partner to a woman diagnosed with cancer. When asked: "What do men get wrong when the woman they love has cancer?" Answer: "A lot. We try to fix things. We do too much. We don't do enough. We don't know what to do about romance. We are scared. In a word, we are clueless." His observations are drawn from personal experience as well as interviews with over 100 couples facing cancer and with cancer doctors and therapists. The talk is aimed at the fraternity of clueless men (of which he declares himself a charter member). Wives/partners are welcome. There will be an opportunity for questions and dialogue. RSVP.
