Every Day is a Gift: A Couple's Cancer Journey

Longueur: 216 pages3 heures


RECOMMENDED by the US Review!

“Many of us are facing problems that may seem overwhelming and even unfair. I learned a long time ago that life is not fair; life is what it is at any given moment. There is happiness, sadness, and every emotion between them. However, I also learned that we can wallow in our sadness or we can ‘choose our attitude,’ hold onto our dreams, and maintain our optimism no matter what!”
—John McEwan
John McEwan and his wife, Margaret, chose to face John’s cancer diagnosis with a positive outlook and realistic vision. Every Day Is a Gift chronicles their family’s experience through Margaret’s recollection of events, her e-mail updates to family and friends, and John’s letters written throughout his five-year cancer journey. In this poignant memoir, Margaret McEwan honors her late husband by providing readers with insights and opportunities for finding hope.

“In Every Day Is a Gift,” Margaret McEwan tells the story of her husband’s life following the diagnosis of metastatic melanoma, and how together they navigated the ups and downs of treatment and clinical trials. Margaret captures the essence of living well with cancer and how compassionate care and upfront communication by the medical team impacts not only the care of the patient but also the bereavement experience for the family. A must read for families and clinicians.”
—Sue Morris, PsyD., Director of Bereavement Services, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston.

“I believe that anyone finding themselves on the cancer journey can identify with the roads that Margaret and John traveled together and find tidbits of solace, grace, and hope to journey down their own roads. With each written page I am reminded of the powerful biblical passage from 1 Corinthians 13:13, which epitomizes Margaret and John’s life together: ‘And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.’”
—Deb Girard is the Executive Director of IMPACT Melanoma. The mission of IMPACT Melanoma is to reduce the risk of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, through innovative early detection and prevention programs as well as support services for melanoma patients and their caregivers.
