Why Not Me by Joseph C. Aurelia Joseph C. Aurelia wrote Why Not Me: A Brave Journey with Cancer to share the story of the loss of his beloved wife, Camille. The book details her battle with cancer. Why Not Me shares information for people with cancer, caretakers, family members, and caring professionals alike. When a loved one is diagnosed with terminal cancer, Aurelia asks readers to support that person, be there, and always support their decisions. Protect them, advocate for them, love them, and yet prepare for their death. “Expressing and dealing with grief is paramount,” Aurelia says. Primarily, Aurelia’s experience taught him that the medical system needs to change the care of Stage 4 patients. His book shows the need to treat the person with cancer, and not just the cancer. But at heart, Why Not Me teaches readers to help their loved one recognize both physical and emotional pain, and to alleviate suffering as much as possible. Decision-making and critical thinking along this journey are a must – Why Not Me may help you and your loved ones in your journey with cancer.

"Why me God? Why not me? I noticed a swelling on my lower left leg on the calf muscle in late December 2009. There was no pain at all, so I dismissed it as a swelling from a hard fall I had taken in my basement about a month earlier. I showed it to Cindy who wanted me to go to the doctor's, but if you haven't noticed I am thick headed and wanted to see if it would just go away..it didn't. The doctor's visit and subsequent MRI in February began the process of identifying just what this thing was. Treatment could only begin after a positive ID. At this point I was not overly concerned. I still believed it to be a hematoma from the fall. It turned out to be much, much more." This is the first entry into a 2-year CaringBridge journal for my husband Bob who was 63 at the time and a very virile and active man. The hematoma turned out to be a rare and aggressive cancer that would take his life just 2 years later. The journal documents the tremendous faith and strength that he received from Christ every step of the way. The journal will carry you through the innermost thoughts of a man who knows that there is a possibility that he will not live through this, but turns to God and sees the joy of life in adversity. I rode the journey with him for 2 years and realized that through Jesus, Bob was able to not only live well but also to die well. His journal will put you front and center on his beautiful journey, something he called "an e-ticket ride with Christ." We were all blessed to be a part of his journey and I hope, that after reading this, you will feel blessed too. "He took my fear and turned it into wonder" "The mysteries of the ages will be mine soon. Are you jealous" "Open our eyes to the reality of the moments we live in."
