When you learn during your honeymoon that your wife has cancer… and just a few years later it affects you too. It happened to Peter and Mirna. In 2008, Mirna was diagnosed with cancer of the colon. A few years later – in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic – tragedy also struck Peter.
It is a book about experiences. Peter and Mirna openly tell how they dealt with their illness. What helped them and what didn’t. Everyone will find their own way to go through the disease process, but their story may offer some guidance and recognition in a very uncertain time. You will also hear about experiences from a child’s point of view.
The handy practical tips offer support in finding the most suitable medical care, explain the ins and outs around hospitalization, and share experiences about dealing with work and those around you. Since Mirna has studied medicine herself, she underwent her illness both with her medical background and as a patient.
