"I'm the first among our friends to have cancer...Many will see their future in the way I handle mine," Barbara Rosenblum wrote after learning she had advanced breast cancer. For the three years Barbara had to live, she and her partner, Sandra Butler, documented their lives with courage and frankness. The two women talk about their identity as Jewish women and as lesbians, and they speak openly about the difficult issues each is facing. Never once losing either its balance or its fierce emotional integrity, Cancer in Two Voices provides a practical example of dealing with death with sensitivity and a deep commitment to living.
