'Rollercoaster' author to speak at Novato men's breakfast club about being a male caregiver

Woody Weingarten
I, Woody Weingarten, have been running a weekly men's support group — Marin Man to Man — for 20 years. 

It's mainly for guys whose partners have, or had, breast cancer.

Tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 2, I get to talk to a different men's group about those years — and about my being the prime caregiver for my wife, Nancy Fox, who was diagnosed with breast cancer two decades ago and lived through the requisite "slash, poison and burn" treatments — surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.

And how she's thriving today.

I'll also speak about my VitalityPress book, "Rollercoaster: How a man can survive his partner's breast cancer."

Tomorrow's talk will be at the weekly 7 a.m. North Marin Breakfast Club in Novato, and is expected to draw some 40 men, including many of the county's leaders.

I'm pleased to have the opportunity.
