When Maggie’s beloved husband, Luke, is diagnosed with cancer, she uses empathy and humor to navigate her fear and sorrow and help him survive.

Luke’s cancer diagnosis is a twist that video producer Maggie never saw coming. As the married couple navigate a maze of long hospital stays, tests, and a life completely interrupted, Luke holds true to his stoic nature while Maggie struggles to embrace her new starring role as a cancer caregiver. With a cast of characters-including their German shepherd, Westy-spanning supportive to downright despicable, Luke and Maggie learn that sometimes treatment for an illness is only half the battle. How do you fight the turmoil? Why, with humor of course!
