“I felt helpless,”
Cec Murphy writes in his introduction to his book, When Someone You Love Has Cancer, compiled because he has experienced the uncertainty that the diagnosis brings. When his wife received the news, he could do little. “I felt powerless and empty. I did for her the only thing I could—and I did it for me as well—prayed.”
The book not only contains anecdotes of personal experiences from family and friends of the suffering, put also contains practical advice to equip those who love cancer patients to be more in tune with things they can do and things they should avoid doing.
