Lisa Niemi and Patrick Swayze first met as teenagers at his mother's dance studio. He was older and just a bit cocky; she was the gorgeous waif who refused to worship the ground he walked on. It didn't take long for them to fall in love. Their thirty-four year marriage was a uniquely passionate partnership that ended all too soon when Patrick died of pancreatic cancer in 2009.

In her remarkable account of grief, loss, care giving, and moving on, Lisa Niemi Swayze imparts never before revealed stories of the Swayzes' final months together. Worth Fighting For is both an emotionally honest and unflinching depiction of illness and death, and a hopeful, life-affirming exploration of the power of the human spirit - and the ultimate knowledge that the love shared between two people never dies.

Thank you Lisa for a very candid and honest memoir not only of battling cancer but of a strong marriage and partnership. Patrick lives on in your heart.
