Michael Coccari provides personal testimony; shows how wife’s condition changed his family

(Jan.18, 2018) – Michael Coccari sat next to his wife when she got the news. She had breast cancer, stage four, incalculably aggressive. And sadly, the cancer had most likely already spread through the rest of her body.

The prognosis wasn’t positive, but that would not stop the Coccari family from loving one another or holding onto their steadfast faith. Coccari shares the perspective of a husband and a caregiver with “Cancer Fight: My Wife’s Faithful, Fearless Battle Against Breast Cancer.”

“Cancer Fight” honors Coccari’s wife Darlene and chronicles her seven-year battle with the disease. He captures his wife’s personal journey and discusses the procedures she endured, her pursuit of a cure and her faith in God. He also educates readers about cancer and the significance of providing a helping hand to others.

“People who are facing life-threatening illnesses deserve more respect, attention, and support,” Coccari said. “That is why I shared my wife’s story. My wife displayed heroic qualities of courage, resiliency and faith that deserved to be acknowledged.”
