In 2011, Peter Rogers was diagnosed with a rare form of leukaemia. For a fit and active man, recently retired, the news was devastating. Written by his wife, Jennifer, this is the story of Peter’s battle with the disease, expressing the highs and crushing lows of the last three years of his life. Through chemotherapy, blood transfusions and bone marrow transplants, Peter kept meticulous notes: recording both the details of his treatment and his appreciation of the care he received from doctors and other dedicated healthcare staff. But this book is also a testament to the unfailing love and care of his wife, Jennifer, whose selfless devotion shines through her account – not only of coping with Peter’s illness, but poignant memories of their life together, family gatherings and happy holidays with friends. Many will relate to this heart-rending but all-too-common account of love and loss.

Jennifer Rogers was born in Edgware, Middlesex in February 1950. Educated in state Primary and Grammar schools, she subsequently read English at college. She then spent several years teaching in primary schools before devoting her life to being a housewife and mother to her three children.
