The book is thorough, not sugarcoated and shows just how much of a cancer truly is. BUT it also shows just how strong Patrick (and Lisa) were throughout this entire process. Patrick defied the odds and became quite an inspiration for people to fight with all their might. Near the end of the book when I came to the part about Patrick's last hospital visit and last day of life, I paused, staring off into space not knowing if I really wanted to read what I was about to read but I composed myself and went through it. I was left with tears streaming down my face as I faced that part of the book but I don't regret i. .

What a beautiful love story. I had a lump in my throat the whole time I was reading this. These two people, Patrick Swayze and his wife of 34 years, Lisa, were so meant for each other. This accounting of Patricks illness, and his wife's devotion was something that is so rare in this mixed up world. I am sorry that he died, he still had much to offer, things to do. He, with his wife at his side thru it all, fought this ugly illness with courage and dignity. I am grateful to Mrs. Swayze for writing this book. I learned so much about pancreatic cancer, and the treatments. It must be the hardest thing a person has to do, to know when to 'let go', but she did it with all the love in her heart. I don't think cancer won that battle; I think Patrick and Lise Swayze did. They both came out of this with admiration and respect from everybody.

Upon ordering and quickly being sucked into "The Time of my Life" I was urged by another reader that I needed to buy "Worth Fighting For". I was on here ordering within minutes of being given the suggestion and I have no ounce of regret for it.

I was immediately sucked into this book, just like the previous book written by Buddy and Lisa.

I've never personally experienced seeing anyone close to me suffer from an illness like this so I can't declare myself as being knowledgeable on the emotional rollercoaster that it causes but I can say that Lisa truly had a way with her words of making me feel like I was right there watching them go through this - maybe like a "fly on the wall" perspective".

The book is thorough, not sugarcoated and shows just how much of a [insert vulgar word] cancer truly is. BUT it also shows just how strong Patrick (and Lisa) were throughout this entire process. Patrick defied the odds and became quite an inspiration for people to fight with all their might.

I'll always be angry that cancer took Buddy's young life away from us - and what lives it will continue to claim until a cure is found - but I truly commend Lisa for her strength and for those who all experience this too.

Near the end of the book when I came to the part about Patrick's last hospital visit and last day of life, I paused, staring off into space not knowing if I really wanted to read what I was about to read but I composed myself and went through it. I was left with tears streaming down my face as I faced that part of the book but I don't regret it..

Took me a while to finish this book as I prolonged the inevitable as long as possible. I admire people like Lisa and Patrick; able to put it all out there and share their most intimate moments, no matter how horrific and enduring criticisms all along the way.

I purchased this book because I wanted to read another person's journey and healing process when they lost someone they love after months or years of caring for them. I too have taken the same journey and have been in a fog for 6 years. It was after reading this book, and finding out that Lisa re-married and found love again without leaving Patrick behind, gave me courage to move forward as well. This book took me out of the 100% grieving mode to healing mode. I am surprised it happened and thank Lisa and Patrick for their part.

As a long time Patrick Swayze fan, I have avoided reading this book. I knew it existed, but I also knew it would be incredibly sad. Guess what? My own smart, talented, wonderful husband, at age 58, was diagnosed with Stage IV, pancreatic cancer. Again, I avoided this book....for even more obvious reasons. We (yes we) have been fighting this awful disease for fifteen months now....and I knew the timing was right. First, I read his biography, "The Time of My Life," then I read "Worth Fighting For." Thank you! Thank You! Lisa Niemi for finding the strength to write this book. (Your yellow legal pad must have contained a wealth of information). Sadly, even after 7 years, the treatments haven't changed much. We are still fighting the fight! This book has helped me to understand why we keep trying...eventually the results WILL CHANGE!

I am a wife of a beautiful, 58-year old man who has this disease (we have been fighting it for 10 months). Thanks to Lisa's story, I don't feel lonely. I highly recommend this to anyone that faces this monstrous cancer. This book motivates me to bring awareness since research for a cure still remains under-funded and fairly unknown.

I loved this book. I'm not an avid reader, either. I honestly haven't read a book since high school (15+ years ago). I do not have the patience to sit down and read a book. But, I was traveling for a few weeks for work and needed something to pass the time on the airplane. This book is written well and it reads well. I laughed, I cried and I genuinely felt "in their world." I will admit that I did skip over some pages toward the middle as it seemed to get redundant for a bit. But, great book overall. I've recommended it to several people.

Before reading this book, I felt that no one understood what I was going through, after losing my loving husband of 20 years to gastric cancer on December 24, 2012. There were so many similarities to our story, how we were a busy, happy couple in love, then in one day our lives changes forever. Like Donny, my brother-in-law, Gary, was our rock. He took off from work to help take care of Byron in our home, he traveled with us ( and all of the medical equipment ) back and forth for treatments, and was our sounding board for all of the difficult decisions that we had to make. Unlike Patrick and Lisa, we didn't get as many breaks, he was too far advanced for a research study and the tumor continued to grow despite the aggressive chemotherapy regimen. It robbed the most beautiful man I have ever known of his strength, and ravaged his body. Like Patrick, Byron astounded all of us by fighting this horrible disease with extreme grace and courage. He never complained. He never gave up on our love that he believed was Worth Fighting For. A must read for anyone who has lost the love of their life, or for those who might need a reminder of how precious everyday you have with them can be.
