By Pamela Domos on June 27, 2006
Format: Paperback
"Men Bleed Too" is the most honest, graphically detailed account of a beautiful woman who lost her blessed life to the deadly disease of cancer. This book is a true story of the life and death of Barbara Brown, my sister-in-law, whose life on earth was cut way too short by the deadly disease of inflammatory breast cancer. Barbara's husband, Tom Brown, warmly portrays the life of the cancer battle through a detailed journal of her illness including his and Barb's feelings throughout the diagnosis and treatment. This book makes you feel to the core, the hardness of life when an illness strikes a family. Cancer has touched all of us in someway, but many of us don't understand the depth of what caregivers experience physically and emotionally. "Men Bleed Too" takes you through all the emotions through the eyes and heart of the patient and husband. The story is sad: but Barbara's life was far from it. She lives on with us, her family and friends in this wonderful story of total courage. This book will help others in understanding life, illness and death, but most importantly love.

Not ever having experienced a debilitating disease, this book places the reader in the midst of the chaos and heartbreak that is breast cancer. Several times throughout I had to set the book aside and continue reading it later--It was simply too much to handle.

I applaud Mr. Brown on being able to share so candidly what he experienced. It's one thing listening to a televised interview of of breast cancer patients/survivors -- but television doesn't allow the time OR cover the depth of what REALLY goes on.

Reading this journal truly opened my eyes and opened up discussions between me and my husband on what we would do if we were faced with this situation. I recommend this book to all people...ESPECIALLY those of us that have been spared such a terrible tragedy.

Having lost my first wife to cancer, I would highly recommend this book for anyone finding themselves a caretaker for their wife with cancer. It is not only a good primer guiding one through the morass of our health care system, it is an enlightening map as to the expectations of such a journey. It humanizes health care professionals and encourages us to not only question medical opinion but to gain ownership in the process to ensure positive medical care for your loved one. Tom's experience liberates men caretakers from thinking that there's is a unique experience, for it shared by countless others, who prior to this book, remained silent. It also allows men to know that it's okay to make their needs during such times, known to both their family and spouse, so that such needs, rather than be surpressed, be shared and openly dealt with to ease the pain of being a caretaker. Tom Brown guides us through his heart of darkness journey and emotional roller coaster ride with his day to day thoughts, prayers, emotions and courage in an effort to find something good in each day during his family's worst crises. It is here that the reader finds solid inspiration that allows any caretaker to move forward and make the best out of an otherwise, horrible situation. The book demonstrates how a commitment to one another, the value of nurturing a good marriage, communicating on a daily basis one's own needs, and praying can overcome any difficulty in life. Tom Brown's book elevates "her problem," to "our problem," and focuses the power of togetherness to overcome the tragedy that cancer brings to any family. It is a powerful answer to the question when cancer hits someone we love of, "why me, to the answering of that same question, of, "why not me ?Read more ›
