Authors: Hesketh, Frederick A. 
Book Description:
A successful engineer who was happily married to a cancer survivor, Frederick Hesketh seemed to have everything. But his world was smashed upon his receiving a diagnosis of cancer.
This book, however, is not about shattered nests, shattered dreams and disease; its topics are life, faith, and hope. The book describes a patientís battle to gain control of his life, mind, and body and to cope with the demands of being a patient while trying to apply an engineerís logic to this unimaginable situation. The story is of a husband and wife and their five children (plus grandchildren) who together faced this threatening illness twice, finding strength and courage in each other.
