Recently, someone asked me why they should read my book. Killing Us Softly: Becoming the Surviving Spouse of Cancer was the book in question.
Some of the reasons were not expected and included:
1. It will help you gain perspective on where your marriage stands before you have to wrestle with the state of your marriage on top of (or on the roadside with) a catastrophic diagnosis.
2. Spouses die every day. Some very unexpectedly. The information is not limited to long, drawn-out experiences.
3. The disease on the cover is cancer. You can replace it with nearly any other disease or simply old age and still benefit.
4. It will make you laugh. Yes, there are some things surrounding death which we take so seriously, in hindsight we laugh.
5. It is true. I lived it. I do not sugarcoat glimpses into one of the hardest times of my life.
6. Marriage can make the experience easier. Teams always fight harder than single players.
7. It will make you ask questions which may never occur to you without reading it or being in the same position.
8. It will help you find answers to those questions without telling you what you should or should not do.
9. KUS celebrates marriage. Partnership is not discounted merely because the focus is suddenly shifted to a catastrophe.
10. KUS proves love does not crawl into the grave. Someone you know could benefit from reading it.
11. Children are not immune to the death of those close to them. It will show you how to care for your children in the event someone they love dies.
12. KUS helps you appreciate what you have long before it is gone.
