I was Chuck’s primary caregiver and wife during the 3 1/2 years of treatment. During this time he wrote a book and self published it detailing his journey thru the cancer diagnosis from a patient’s point of view, all the while using his own style of humor to keep his positive to this very serious condition. I am a 3 year breast cancer survivor myself and would like everyone who has a family member or friend to visit my website. I have had lots of positive feedback from patients and families about Chuck’s book. God Bless all who are dealing with a cancer diagnosis.
