Twenty years ago, when my wife, Nancy Fox, was diagnosed with breast cancer, we both internalized a lesson:
All we have is today.
So we learned to appreciate the here and now—and have implemented the idea each day ever since.
I’ve made references to that lesson in my VitalityPress book aimed at male caregivers, “Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner’s breast cancer.”
I also commented about it during the wrap-up of my first foray into television, when I was recently interviewed by David Perry on his “Ten Percent” telecast on Comcast Hometown Network Channel 104, a cable station in San Francisco.
You can listen to that entire 8-minute, 45-second interview on YouTube—here and now.
And, then, you can either check out a shorter, 90-second KCBS radio interview, or a considerably longer, 30-minute, 33-second Love Letters Live podcast.
Also available is a full-length newspaper feature, substantial blog interviews by a Texan and a San Franciscan, and a glowing review by Santa Fe author Hollis Walker.
Not to mention an extremely positive follow-up online piece by Janet Gallin, a tribute-recommendation by blogger Marilyn Miller, and a plug by a nonprofit organization, Zero Breast Cancer.
You also can find more information about me and/or my book by delving deeper into my VitalityPress.com blog, by checking out the Marin-Man-to-Man support group for male caregivers of breast cancer patients — or, perhaps best of all, by ordering a copy of “Rollercoaster” from your local bookstore (or Amazon) or asking your local library to stock it
