About the Book

Life happens. For author Julie Annette Bennett and her husband, Scott, their love for each other became the basis for an extraordinary journey that would change their lives forever in unimaginable ways. When Scott collapsed in the Target parking lot on March 4, 2007, his wife of fifteen years believed he had died. As Julie called 911, she thought, Oh my God! I’m not ready. Please don’t take him yet. Please God, don’t let him die! That moment in time began a medical journey for the couple that no one should ever have to live through. Together they faced uncertainties that would test Scott’s strength of spirit and fill Julie with a courage that would guide her as she became a caregiver for the man she loved. Now Julie shares their story in a loving tribute to Scott and to their beautiful life together; she also offers a helpful guide for all caregivers encountering their own challenges. This personal narrative shares the story of two lives that embarked on a sixteen-year journey through chronic illnesses and eventual grief, offering advice for caregivers along the way.
