It is a book I have written for caregivers who are left behind. It is about my wife who lost her life to pancreatic cancer 2 years ago. It covers the journal I kept from her diagosis until her death and then chronicles my life for the next year. It is nothing earth shattering, rather it is written to show others that we all have similar feelings and situtions that confront us. It will be available mid summer 2009 and you can learn more by going to www.thewhiskereddog.com.

This fabulous website was designed by the amazing Kris Carr who is the author of "Crazy Sexy Cancer Tips" and "Crazy Sexy Cancer Survivor". She also created a documentry called "Crazy Sexy Cancer" as she couragiously tells her story of what it is like to be diagnosed at age 31 with a rare, incurable liver cancer. Kris has been living with her cancer for six years now and her positive attitude and sense of humor has helped so many women (and dudes) find a sense of what means to really live.
