In May 2005, David Treadway - a successful psychologist, writer, husband, and father of two adult sons - was diagnosed with stage 4, non-Hodgkins' lymphoma and given a 25 per cent chance of survival. In the blink of an eye, his world shattered. Faced with the news, his family all had to cope with their own, unique challenges. Here, in beautifully crafted alternating chapters, all four Treadways tell the story of their first year with cancer, avoiding platitudes and easy answers in favour of the raw honesty of a family coping with disease. Moving, heartbreaking, morbidly wry and ultimately uplifting, "Home Before Dark" captures the everyday struggles of living with and loving someone fighting for his life.
