In Walking Toward the Light , author Robert Bruce provides a detailed account of his struggle to understand his wife's cancer diagnosis, his eventual acceptance of her inevitable death, and the end of their forty-five-year marriage.

When a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, it is devastating. Through personal experience, Robert Bruce advises how to overcome the challenges that surface along this emotional path and recommends a plan for dealing with the outcome. In a conversational tone, he presents his experiences--from the initial diagnosis to how he accepted and redefined himself after his wife's death. For those undergoing this same traumatic experience, Dr. Bruce provides guidance on what to expect and how to successfully deal with each event. You will learn how to:

  • Accept the disease
  • Tell your family
  • Research options
  • Reassess life's priorities
  • Use humor to cope
  • Make final preparations
  • Accept death and deal with grief
  • Evaluate your finances
  • Continue with your life

    Cancer cannot cripple love or shatter hope--it cannot silence courage or the spirit. Robert Bruce teaches you how to be strong, faithful, and listen to your heart. By doing so, you, too, will survive the journey. Please visit our website at www.walkingtowardthelight.com
