Synopsis: "You have cancer."

These three simple words strike terror in the hearts of anyone diagnosed with this horrific disease. For any spouse, friend, partner, or relative, the news can be just as devastating. Suddenly, you find yourself in the role as caregiver. You want to help, but how? This heartwarming story offers insight into the life of the author, who stood by his wife's side as she confronted not one, but two very deadly episodes of cancer.

The strategies provided in this touching book will benefit any new or even veteran caregiver, as well as patients, family members, friends, and members of the medical community that are wondering what they should know and do if, or when, personally confronted with a loved one or friend with a debilitating illness or injury.

We're In This Together provides 70 Caregiver Tips learned during the author's journey as a caregiver, including:

  • Receiving the news: How do I manage my emotions and still be supportive?
  • Understanding diagnoses and treatments: Tracking the details that matter.
  • Spending time in the hospital: How the new "normal" can be inspiring and even fun.
  • Becoming the great communicator: Sharing the news with friends and family.
  • Handling setbacks and overcoming obstacles: Finding the good in "every stinkin' day."
  • Taking care of yourself: Balancing the demands of caregiving with your own personal needs.

  • This emotional true story reads like a fast-paced, gripping action novel. At the same time, it's informative, thought provoking and a book you will not soon forget.

    The number of caregivers in the United States is staggering. According to the National Family Caregivers Association's caregiving statistics, more than 65 million people (that's 29 percent of the US population) provide care for a chronically ill, disabled, or aged family member or friend during any given year; on average, caregivers devote 20 hours per week providing care for loved ones.

    This book provides every caregiver, regardless of the reason or length of time they have been in this position with the valuable tools they need to navigate through their medical journey.

    The author provides solutions and support for dealing with the mental, physical and emotional aspects of caregiving. Being a caregiver can be a wonderful experience. It can change your life, all for the better. By reading this book, you, too, can appreciate every single day in a way you have never experienced before or ever thought imaginable.

    About the Author: Rob Harris is an accredited Human Resources professional (SPHR). In that position, he assists corporate executives and employees with strategic and day-to-day human resources needs.

    More importantly, Rob is a caregiver to his wife, a two-time cancer survivor (Lymphoma, Sarcoma). The experience of caring for her over the years has enriched his life beyond what he could ever have imagined. Rob blogs about caregiving at his website. He is also a regular contributor to the American Cancer Society's website and Leeza Gibbons' blog, as well as a guest blogger on many other websites.

    He's a widely recognized expert on caregiving and has been interviewed on radio, video, and in well-known print and digital publications. Rob's second book, We're In This Together: A Caregiver's Guide, is in production.

    Although he will always consider Maryland home, Rob and his wife have resided in Orlando, FL for many years. They are the proud parents of two sons, both officers in the US Army, with one currently serving in Afghanistan.
