Loving Life

A personal perspective on supporting a partner who is undergoing cancer treatment

by Steve Ford

“Loving Life” by Steve Ford is an inspirational book tailored for partners, families, and friends of those confronting serious health challenges, such as cancer. It offers guidance on how to provide support, maintain emotional wellbeing, and handle the stress and anxiety that come with caring for a loved one. Ford emphasises the importance of understanding individual responses to illness, recognising that each person’s journey to seeking help, whether it be mental or physical, is unique.

The book extends beyond just the perspective of the patient, shedding light on the often-overlooked experiences of caregivers. It addresses the critical question of who supports the supporters, offering valuable insights and practical advice. From dealing with the initial diagnosis to navigating the complexities of treatment and recovery, “Loving Life” serves as a comprehensive guide, covering aspects of family mental health, emotional wellbeing, and holistic care. It’s a resource for anyone involved in the caregiving journey, offering hope and resilience in the face of adversity.
