View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Many fine books have been written by bone marrow or stem cell transplant survivors, but Across the Chasm: A Caregiver's Story offers a unique glimpse of the transplant experience - as seen through the eyes of a caregiver.

Twenty-seve-year-old Naomi Zikmund-Fisher was six months pregnant with her first child when she learned that her husband needed a bone marrow transplant. In the two years that followed, she grappled with the fear, exhaustion, anger, uncertainty, exhilaration and disappointments that are the core of the caregiver's experience.

Across the Chasm chronicles Zikmund-Fisher's day-to-day life, as she struggled to care for her husband, raise a young child, and maintain her sanity. With humor and candor, she offers a vivid picture of the emotions and challenges caregivers face.
