In 1998 Beckerman's husband of 33 years, Barry Beckerman, was diagnosed with sarcoma, a deadly form of cancer. For the next four years, the couple fought the disease together, managing to take vacations and celebrate family occasions, in between cancer treatments. Beckerman started keeping a journal during this time and this book is the result of that endeavor. In a very personal way,
Out of Time details the triumphs and the tragedy of a couple fighting for life. It reveals the heroes in the medical community who fought right alongside the couple, and although there are no easy answers as to why or how, the author's story is testimony to the will of the human spirit and the never-give-up attitude of this couple.
"Out of Time: One Couple's Journey Through Cancer" is an important book for those who fight the same battle and for those who are caregivers and medical professionals. They will recognize and identify with this story and understand not only how this couple navigated the medical-insurance complex to provide for the best outcome, but how they continued to live their lives in a way that encouraged each other and valued each moment of time they had together.
