Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975328611, Paperback)Waking Up Dying is the story of Robert, a loving and desperate husband struggling to get his beloved wife, Shearlean, the increasingly urgent treatment an indifferent healthcare system seemed incapable of providing. The book tells of the couple's daily battle for acute care for terminal brain cancer. It describes the terrifying gap where acute care was available for just eight of the 531 days from diagnosis to death. Not a generic cancer or caregiving book, this memoir covers the day-to-day successes and failures of navigating American healthcare. Emphasis is on reform, end-of-life preparation and managing care.
