Summary
Marilu Henner was moving on with her life after a divorce when her old college classmate Michael Brown, whom she had not seen in over twenty years, called her out of nowhere. Within days of their reconnecting in 2003, they became inseparable. But only months later, Michael was diagnosed with bladder cancer, and then lung cancer. Marilu refused to lose the love of her life so easily. With the knowledge she had gained on her own health journey, Marilu set about finding a path for Michael that would use the best of Eastern and Western medicine to beat his cancers and return him to optimal health. He eschewed most traditional treatments, and with Marilu's help--aided by knowledgeable and sympathetic doctors--he forged his own path. Here, Marilu tells the story of their fast-paced romance, contrasted with the day-to-day battle for Michael's life. Michael tells the story from his point of view: the search for the cause of his cancer, the anguish he felt as he realized how responsible he was for his condition, the physical and mental hardships that he had to overcome, and the triumph of love that made it all worthwhile. Not a "how-to" book in the traditional sense, Changing Normal is a book of empowerment, a call for all those facing similar challenges to take responsibility for their lives, to search for the causes of their illness and address them directly.--Adapted from dust jacket
