" Keeping Afloat in Trouble Waters"

audio documentary by Jeff McCrea & Mike Bliley

“The challenge that we face right now is that my wife has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer. I am preparing a vast majority of the meals, I am doing the laundry, I am keeping the house clean, and without my soulmate at my side; that is a HECK of a lot of extra duty that I take on, gladly – and I wish I didn’t have to. Cancer is absolutely horrible. If one were to allow fear to dictate what we do, I think it could be devastating . . . because I can’t imagine how Betsy is able to (she’s the strongest person I know) maintain sanity with this horrific disease we’re dealing with.”—Paul Peter
