"A must reading for all couples facing cancer together, as well as for caregivers and professionals assisting these couples. In addition to identifying stages to assist couples in anticipating and normalizing the range of impact when cancer becomes part of their lives, the authors provide real-life examples to help understand these stages." -- D.H.L., Ph.D., University Professor of Psychology
"I wish my husband and I could have read 'Love is a Journey' during the acute treatment stages of my cancer-it validates and supports so much of what a couple goes through. But, it has also helped us to identify the long range effect on our marriage now that the cancer is in remission. It's never too late for couples to benefit from this book!" -- J.L., Cancer survivor
