A cancer diagnosis can strain the strongest of relationships. However, a new study that is scheduled to appear in an upcoming issue of Annals of Behavioral Medicine suggests that "a husband -- as either patient or caregiver -- appears particularly influenced by the wife's frame of mind."

I don't want this kind of influence. But, the dynamic is one I've been aware of throughout my experience with the disease.
