What Peopl
e Are Saying...

"Filled with excellent resources, this book is a candid portrayal of the effect  that the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer can have on a significant other."
—E. Darracott Vaughan, Jr., M.D.,
New-York Presbyterian Hospital,
Weill Cornell Medical Center

"Beautifully written—what else would you expect from a poet?—and incredibly helpful. Victoria Hallerman has a marvelous eye for the offbeat detail and an excellent grasp of how a man and his spouse can best cope with the disease, its treatment, and its aftermath."
—Marc Silver,
author of
Breast Cancer Husband

"This honest, wise, and generous handbook is especially helpful for that excruciating time after diagnosis and before treatment. Victoria Hallerman adds her intelligence to the growing body of literature that struggles with prostate cancer's medical and social challenges. Perfect to slip into your purse or briefcase for company in the waiting room."
—Karen Propp,
author of
In Sickness, In Health

"Well written, with an honest perspective of the journey of living with prostate cancer... Will be a great resource for many couples."
—Ali Torre, wife of baseball manager
and prostate cancer survivor Joe Torre

“As a 16-years-plus survivor and the founder and facilitator of a prostate cancer support program, I think this book should be kept on the nightstands of prostate cancer survivors as a constant reminder and reference on how to battle this dreaded disease.”
—Dennis O'Hara, Poughkeepsie (NY)
Chapter of Man to Man

“As a nurse with over 30 years' experience, many of them in oncology, I found the book to be easy to read, riveting in its honesty, and at times, heartbreaking. It will be an important tool for many men and women facing a prostate cancer diagnosis.”
—Mary Jane Nealon, RN, MFA
Program Development Director
Partnership Health Center
Missoula, MT
