Reviews - What do customers think about When Someone You Love Has Cancer?

He cares about your heart  Jul 23, 2009
Cec Murphey put his love into action as he cared for his wife, Shirley, through the difficult journey with cancer. He felt helpless. He couldn't fix it. But he learned to care and love deeply.

He encourages care-givers with practical, personal and powerful insight just as though he is walking through it with you. Cec is honest with his pain as a caregiver but always finds the positive.

It's a beautifully illustrated book by Michal Sparks and would be a source of encouragement for care-givers!
A must-have for cancer patient care-givers  Mar 1, 2009
Unfortunately, almost everyone knows at least one person who has cancer. It's one of those things that touch everyone's life in some way. And, those who must deal with it each day after day know first-hand what a struggle it is. Cecil Murphey's wife was diagnosed with cancer. As he says, "I couldn't make her better or take away the diagnosis. I felt powerless and empty. I did for her the only thing I could - and I did it for me as well - I prayed."

Murphey gives us personal insight into the world of cancer patients. His book is divided into chapters, each dealing with some aspect of life with cancer. And, each has a short prayer that relates to the subject matter of the chapter text. An appendix offers guidance and practical advice for caregivers. Well-known watercolor artist Michal Sparks' paintings add visual appeal to the text.

This is a must-have for spouses, care-givers and friends of cancer patients. 5 stars.
Fantastic book!  Jan 28, 2009
Cec Murphey's well-written book addresses cancer in a personal, practical way. The appendix offers guidance for caregivers and explains what to avoid doing and saying as well as what is appreciated. Michal Sparks' watercolor illustrations are beautiful. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
