Don’t Walk Through the Mirror
Anthony J. Garbowski and Lorna J. Shaw (McMillen Publishing, 162 pages)
This heartrending memoir details Living Beyond Breast Cancer founding member Nancy Garbowski’s 16-year battle with breast cancer from a seldom-heard husband’s perspective. Garbowski’s experience sheds light on the importance of staying emotionally connected and how men can best give women what they really need while enduring the disease’s most difficult stages. This tough read bears a simple truth: Once a loved one has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, your life will never be the same.
