Dr. Noy, a prominent psychologist and international authority on the subject of trauma, passed away from a malignant brain tumor. This book recounts the personal and moving journey of farewell, told from the point of view of the wife, herself a professional counselor. The book unfolds the couple’s family and friends, dealing with the disease until the inevitable end. The author invites the reader to embark on a painful journey through the loss of one’s independence and autonomy, while trying to preserve basic human dignity. She tells the story of dealing with the rigid medical system, with physicians that are afraid to confront death, the conflict between home and hospice, her new role as the head of the family, and the difficult moral choices that must be made. A must-read book for anyone having to deal with illness and death; for professional therapists and caretakers.
