    <![CDATA[Cancer Survivor's Day]]> Tuesday, June 9, 2009.

    Dave Balch, an author of "Cancer for Two" is on a mission to help partners of cancer patients as they walk that fine line of helping their loved one through a difficult illness while trying to cope with it themselves.

    Dave supported his wife through four successful bouts with breast cancer, going with her to every medical appointment and caring for her during three surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation treatments.

    Most importantly, he and his wife both kept their sense of humor through it all (well, most of it) as they laughed and ate their way through the entire ordeal.  Together.

    Dave says that this experience, although difficult, was the most rewarding and fulfilling of his life.  And, as a professional communicator, he is in the perfect position to help other caregivers.  He has a unique, inspiring, and loving story to share, coupled with the experience, desire, and ability to share it.
    Cancer survivors and their guests are welcome to enjoy the humor and experiences of Dave and the camaraderie of survivorship at this National Cancer Survivors Day.
