    Red Dwyer - Author

    Red Dwyer’s Killing us Softly is a monumental book of heartfelt and practical advice for getting through and surviving the onslaught of cancer and death of a spouse.
    With the use of real time journal entries and blog posts, the author reaches out to readers in a unique way to guide them through all the emotions, responsibilities, and processes of being the caretaker of a marriage partner.
    Self-care and the care of the children are her primary focus, as she becomes the sole head of household and cup of love for her dying spouse and surviving family of nine children, three of whom are autistic.
    The book is supremely well-balanced in a way that has never been offered to the public before. The journal entries and blog posts draw us into her intimate life as she grieves privately yet exhibits her strength throughout and beyond the dying process. The focus is on helping the reader maneuver through the seemingly herculean feats of love and physical care which are assigned to the surviving spouse once the diagnosis of cancer is definite.
    From discussion on diagnosis and decisions to be made, through treatment and endgame, Red Dwyer holds our hand and shares with us her advice for not only surviving but also claiming our lives as we traverse this difficult and often hidden journey. She discusses the role of spirituality in the lives of the caretaking spouses, and the details of cancer treatment as a partner in the comfort of her loved one.
    Almost all of us are faced with treatment options at end of life, and many of us don’t face them until we are feeble and sick and not entirely in a place to make those decisions. While cancer has specific decisions to be made, Dwyer discusses the choices we all make when faced with extended treatment of a terminal illness or allowing nature to take its course.
    From diagnosis to hospice care, endgame and beyond, this author will be ultimately helpful to millions, who before this point have persevered and survived in silence.

  1. Thanks again Red for having me on your blog. I hope the winners enjoy the book.

    I was shocked to have email that wasn’t an advertisement. I have no idea if I entered this weeks drawing. I think I’ll do that now, before the short kid informs me it’s time for me “starfall” (new favorite website, thanks to her new Kindergarten teacher who was quick to point out that the short kid could spend all the time learning on a computer that she wanted because technology is the future and computer skills will take her far.)………OK I’ll settle down in a couple days and stop randomly posting how pleasantly surprised I am to have gotten a teacher with first hand experience with the diagnosis and that isn’t going to be calling me to come get my child if she has a melt down and disrupts class, instead she’s going to make her stay right there and work through it!……….OK I’m done now, seriously…….got to go enter for the book giveaway.

    • You can thank Bear. He is the one who picks the numbers every week. Your first statement is why I still actually write cards and letters to put in the snail mail box. There is nothing cooler than opening something from someone who does not want money, time, a donation or some other drain on your resources. I hope you enjoy it and review it on Amazon and GoodReads. :)

      And NO ONE is going to say a word about your excitement. Sounds like you have Happy Tension, too!

  3. I was one of the lucky & surprised winners :) I was tickled pink, Red! Thanks so much to you & Ben (and Bear).

    This was my first experience with Kindle Cloud. I love it. I might have to upgrade my technology & get a Kindle! I certainly will give it a review when I’m done reading it.

    I’m with Laurie, I must go enter to win some more!

    • I hope you got the last comment where I told you to enter. The day it would not let you enter was a glitch. You satisfy a number of the ones for the contest for Re-Membering Frankenstein.
