Oct 4, 2009Cathy has put into words what is so difficult to say: there comes a time when you must accept the fact that your loved one may not be with you much longer. Instead of lingering on the sadness and uncertainty of this difficult time, her book gives you the strength and wisdom to focus on what needs to be said and done. Her words are gentle but firm and she has included several beautifully written poems to accompany each chapter. Many have been waiting for a book like this, and finally Cathy has given it to them.
Jul 11, 2009"Unknown Tomorrows" UNKNOWN TOMORROWS is right for anyone trying to cope with an illness, as a caretaker or as a patient. It brings together lovingly in one book--the hopes, the fears, the highs and the lows as one struggles with a serious health problem, plus all the practical knowledge and spiritual faith necessary to overcome the disease. It’s obvious the author wants to lighten for others the task she took on as a caretaker. The poems will touch your hearts; I highly recommend this book.
Jul 7, 2009"comforting words" My mother had a tumor in the back of her head. The diagnosis was unexpected. I was caught by surprise and the words in this book helped me deal with the turmoil. The times were hard, but between these covers I found solace, hope, and strength.
Jan 27, 2009"UNKNOWN TOMORROWS" This book is like no other. Catherine reaches out and hugs you while her words teach you the necessities of caring for a loved one who has a serious or fatal illness. She informs you about items that you may have thought about, and things that you did not even think would make such a monumental impact. If you are faced with this tragedy, and you want to give the best care to both your loved one and yourself - you must read this book. If you know someone who is the caregiver, it is your duty (as their friend) to give them this book. There are no words to comfort a friend that may be a caregiver (or you) as he/she endures what happens - but this book is the cushion to soften the blow. I have never been in this situation, but after reading her words of wisdom, I learned the meaning of 'unconditional love.' It defines true friendship, courage, and strength. This book grabbed hold of my heart with the first few words, and has yet to let go. You MUST read this...

Apr 7, 2008"Unknown Tomorrows" After reading this book, I was empowered to deal with the medical staff during my mother's stay in the hospital. This book enlightens anyone who has had to care for a loved one about your rights as a patient and caregiver. Ms. Canning has truly brought a hidden topic to light with her beautiful poetry and explanations of what to expect from something so tender and sad. Mrs. Johnson was my fifth grade teacher and she is still an inspiration from heaven.
