- Question from Rosen: Marc, what was your wife's reaction to your book? Did you do any research beyond your own experience?
- Answers - Marc Silver I talked to about a hundred different breast cancer couples of all stages and ages in all parts of the country, and their stories make up the spine of the book. I also talked to many excellent doctors and therapists and social workers, including Dr. Weiss and Roz Kleban, and I think their insights were helpful to many couples who read the book. My own wife said she feels a little like she's living in a fishbowl now, but she likes the old saying, "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade."
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Family and Loved Ones featured Rosalind Kleban, L.C.S.W., author Marc Silver, and moderator Marisa Weiss, M.D. answering your questions about the issues surrounding family members and caregivers living with and caring for women affected by breast cancer.
