Synopses & Reviews
Man plans, God laughs
is an old Yiddish proverb. Despite the best of plans, life does not always turn out as expected. We cannot control our fate.
Remember Me is a powerful story of love and loss, strength to overcome adversity, and the meaning of death, and also life, in the modern world. Edward Cantor was happily married to Micki Cantor, the love of his life, both in seemingly healthy middle-age, when Micki developed ovarian cancer.
For several years, the couple together battled her illness.
This book makes a very powerful statement. It must be published and read.”
Sherwin Nuland, winner of the National Book Award for How We Die: Reflections on Lifes Final Chapter
Remember Me is of immense value to family caregivers supporting loved ones during their journeys with cancer. A quick and engaging read, Cantor chronicles the ups, downs, highs, and lows that nearly all cancer patients go through. With remarkable generosity of spirit he shows that we are not alone in how we experience cancer.”

Center and Physician-in-Chief of Smilow Cancer
Hospital at YaleNew Haven
Eds book is for everyone who suffers, especially from cancer, and for those who love them.
That means lots of us. It is the earthy chronicle of survival and triumph. Those who open
themselves to Eds shared recollection will grow in their will to survive even lifes worst
lottery tickets. We all need his example of survival and triumph, over even walking through
the valley of the shadow of death.”
Rabbi Mark Winer, former president of the National
Council of Synagogues
This is an exquisite, agonizing work. There were sections I had to read and re-read because
I could not see through the tears. Your bravery, devotion, gallant and true love informs
each word of this book. It is an invaluable and generous gift to any and all of us who have
faced or are facing the inevitable absence of a loved one.”
Peter Webster, writer, producer, film director
Thank you, Ed, for letting me share this journey. I am fortunate to have, in a very small
way, shared with two friends a battle and how they bravely fought it. This is a well-written,
engaging, and emotionally compelling book.”
Henry Sam” Chauncey, Jr., former president of Gaylord
Hospital and former secretary of Yale University
I found the book absolutely captivating. Author Ed Cantor conveys the emotional and
psychological dimensions of lifes most perplexing and un-understandable questions in
a way that is very clear, and very compelling, but does not get in the way of the narrative.
I am blown away by this book.”
Alan Blanchard, President Emeritus, Episcopal Church
Beautiful, excellently written, poignant, factual, candid, emotional, and helpful to all of
those going through lifes challenges. Great contribution to our society.”
Jamie McLane, former CEO of Aetna Health Plans and
former Chairman of Outward Bound USA
