A Journey through the World of Cancer

According to the National Cancer Institute, one in every two men and one in every three women in America will be diagnosed with cancer. Fifteen hundred Americans die of this disease every day. The media often covers stories about extraordinary survivors and their families. This is a story for everyone else.

Lynn Devlin was married to her husband, Kevin, for twenty-four years. In November 2006, Kevin was diagnosed with stage four cancer. He died after sixteen weeks of aggressive medical therapy.

This is one couple's harrowing journey through the world of cancer. It's the story of a marriage in crisis and a relationship redeemed. It's about a woman who faces raising two children alone. Finally, it is about grief. Lynn shows what happens when the funeral is over. She reveals how she ultimately made the triumphant decision to choose life, every day.

Lynn is a family nurse practitioner who specializes in hospice and palliative care. She shares research-based information everyone needs to know long before cancer affects their families.
