This book reflects the Editor’s realization of the extent to which women were involved in his five-year battle with the crawling crab and the consequent rapid recovery and rehabilitation after surgery for bladder cancer. It is an elucidation of women’s immeasurable contribution to curative care not only in the hospital as medical professionals but also at home as wife, daughter, sister and even the in-laws. The vital role that women play in caring for the indisposed at home after being discharged from hospital deserves recognition. Increasing longevity and prolonged chronic disease imposes a great demand for tender care on women and children. Though such responsibilities do enhance the assistance provided to individuals, they impact caregivers own health, their ability to take up educational, employment and social opportunities and, at times, disrupt normal family life too. Authors, including doctors and others who cared for the sick as well as those who were aiding their near and dear ones, have written to show their appreciation of and gratitude to these countless selfless women.
