Review by Library Journal Reviews

United Methodist church pastor Outcalt (Your Beautiful Wedding on Any Budget) covers a perspective often overlooked in breast cancer narratives and reference works: that of the husband (or partner). Outcalt the pastor has discussed cancer diagnoses with congregants and their families, but Outcalt the husband has also been there for his wife during her treatment. He chronicles the basic time line of treatment similarly to most other books on the subject but makes it clear that husbands are deeply involved as supporters and caregivers and how they feel is equally important. Would pair well with John Anderson's Stand by Her: A Breast Cancer Guide for Men. [Page 135]. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
