One in eight American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes—over 246,000 women in 2016 alone.  That means one in three Americans will be a breast cancer caregiver for their wife, partner, mother, daughter, or sister (and that doesn’t count their friends or coworkers). There hasn’t been a comprehensive, step-by-step guide for caregivers to help their loved ones through beast cancer - until now – with  Stand By Her: A Breast Cancer Guide For Loved Ones.

Author Jack Anderson was a caregiver to four women in his life who went through breast cancer. It was then that he realized that all his experiences, combined with the journeys of other caregivers through “Cancer Land,” needed to be told. So he wrote Stand by Her: A Breast Cancer Guide for Loved Ones, which talks directly to caregivers, and offers strategies and support on the countless minefields they will face, every day, as husbands, partners, daughters, sons, sisters, brother, mothers, fathers, nieces, nephews, friends, and coworkers of breast cancer patients before, during, and after her treatment.

Throughout the book, Anderson combines his own personal stories with accounts from other caregivers, along with detailed advice from experts who address all the medical, emotional, physical, psychological, family relationship, sexual, and financial issues.  Each chapter focuses on each stage of the breast cancer process, framed with its own unique color, to symbolize what the reader and their loved one are going through.  

When a loved one has cancer, family and friends are at a loss about what to do and how to do it, and are left with all the best of intentions and nowhere to go. Stand by Her fills that gap and is a great go-to resource for anyone who has a loved one facing a cancer diagnosis and treatment.

I have read dozens of books on breast cancer and written one myself, but Stand by Her is unique, written by a man who has helped four separate women deal with their breast cancer experiences. It goes without saying that caregivers and loved ones should go out and "Stand by Her."

Jack Anderson offers invaluable perspective on how breast cancer becomes a family journey. An incredible resource for all who have been touched by breast cancer.
