About the Book

In 5-13: A Memoir of Love, Loss and Survival Nancy Rankie Shelton encourages readers to overcome their fears of cancer, remain steadfast and loving, survive the death of a loved one, and continue living. Shortly after his 58th birthday, Nancy’s husband Jack is diagnosed with stage four metastatic lung cancer. Over the next five months, his rapidly deteriorating health, numerous emergency room trips, and the stress and confusion of managing his treatment defines their lives. But Jack’s fight with cancer is not the sum total of their lives or this memoir. Reflections of the 35 years they were together are woven throughout the narrative. Jack’s childhood, their first date, the birth of their only child, and their relationships with others are all part of their story. Nancy’s identity as a wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend are all part of the experience. 5-13 is a brave love story beautifully written.
