Stand By Her: A Breast-Cancer Guide for Men


Every three minutes in the U.S., a woman learns that she has breast cancer. Fortunately, most women quickly learn about the support systems that can help them deal with what lies ahead: friends, sisters, support groups…

But what about the man in that woman’s life? How does he deal with his own fears and frustrations? And how can he best help his wife? Sister? Mom?

John W. Anderson had four women in his life go through breast cancer: his wife, mom, sister and his mom’s best friend. He chose to use what he learned through this difficult journey to help other men who are going through the same thing.

Written exclusively for men, Stand By Her (2009, Amacom Books) talks about what guys can expect, both before and after the woman’s treatment. Anderson doesn’t avoid tough topics such as family relationships, sexual issues, financial issues.

I’m so glad to share this book with you. I hope the man in your life never needs it. But I’m glad to know that Anderson has shared his hard-won knowledge to help others. When it comes to fighting cancer, no one should feel alone.
