Stand by Her: A Breast Cancer Guide for Men Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every year, more than a million women worldwide are diagnosed with breast cancer. They are shocked, depressed, and terrified—and they shouldn’t have to fight this battle on their own. They are going to need support from their families and close friends, and in particular from husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and other men in their lives. But as brave and strong as those men want to be, they too are facing what may be the challenge of a lifetime—and they are going to need help. Based on the author’s personal experiences and extensive research, Stand by Her is both a practical guide and an uplifting, inspirational work.

Advance Praise for Stand By Her

“John Anderson takes the reader through the terrifying, frustrating, and unfamiliar world of a woman’s breast cancer diagnosis with humor, frankness, and practical advice gleaned from experts and a lot of personal experience. Anyone supporting a loved one with any kind of cancer will benefit from this book, but it should be required reading for the men in the life of a breast cancer patient, whether they be husbands, fathers, brothers, ex-spouses, sons, or close friends.”

Hala Moddelmog, President and CEO, Susan G. Komen for the Cure®

“This book is an amazing resource. Informative, funny, moving, and always brutally frank, it is a must for men (and women!) trying to understand the world of breast cancer.” — Barron H. Lerner, MD, Professor of Medicine, Columbia University, and author, The Breast Cancer Wars

Stand by Her is an accurate and heartfelt description of the emotions and feelings a spouse goes through during discovery and treatment of breast cancer. If you have already gone through the process, it makes you feel like you’re not alone. If you are about to, it will give you an excellent understanding of what to expect.” — Frank Fiorina, husband of cancer survivor Carly Fiorina, ex-CEO, Hewlett-Packard

John W. Anderson is an Emmy-nominated director for Lifetime Television’s “Stop Breast Cancer for Life” campaign and an award-winning writer whose work has appeared in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, the Nation, and many other publications. He has helped his mother, wife, sister, and a close friend in their battles against breast cancer. He lives in Roanoke, Virginia.
