Summary When Maria Quiban Whitesell's husband was diagnosed with glioblastoma (GBM), a deadly form of brain cancer, she was completely unprepared. Now, after going through hell and back, Whitesell knows that she never wants anyone to feel as lost as she did. In You Can't Do It Alone, Whitesell teams up with licensed therapist Lauren Schneider to offer a welcoming and supportive guide to healing from any traumatic loss, helping you: discuss a serious diagnosis in an honest, clear manner, regain control over your life when it feels like chaos, find your own support group, deal with memories, family and friends, balance work, caregiving, and parenting. With powerful and moving clarity, Whitesell tells her story of struggle and heartbreak, reaching out her hand and inviting you to walk the path toward healing together, so that you truly know that you are not alone.
