Hazen Meek and Linda Pierson Meek collaborate on book

The husband and wife discuss their 33-year marriage and their journey together through an endless succession of health problems.


Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA – WEBWIRE

An enormously inspiring story that encourages readers not to give up on their loved ones

Hazen Meek endured three strokes, a heart attack, quadruple bypass surgery, and prostate cancer for decades until his death in 2013. Through all those times, Linda Pierson Meek stood by her ailing husband, for her love is powerful than any health problem. It proved a marriage can withstand the most severe trials in life.

Knowing that he had little time left, Hazen began writing about his life and experience, particularly his marriage to Linda and his struggles with health problems. After he passed away, a family friend compiled his writings and Lindaís thoughts into a book, ďGiving Up Is Not an Option: One Manís Struggle to Make the Impossible Possible,Ē which was first published the year after his death. The most current edition is published by ReadersMagnet.

Lindaís prologue complements her late husbandís story, thus completing the book, a memoir he did not live to see published. Linda provides a light overview of their lives together (in the perspective of a wife and caregiver) while Hazen adds more details to their story (in the perspective of a sufferer who is determined to recover).

Readers will get depressed to know that Hazen survived two strokes, only to suffer more health issues later, including prostate cancer, which later cost his life. Hazen felt his health issues had cheated Linda out of a real husband.

Still, readers will be inspired by his determination and positivity. It could have been the end for Hazen but he refused to entirely succumb to his predicament and let fate dictate his course. He recovered from his strokes and taught himself to walk again, one tiny step at a time.

As if it was not enough, he also taught himself to type with his good hand. The fruit of his resolve is a book but it is not just any bookÖ a tangible testimony of an enduring love between a husband and wife, who refused to give up on themselves and each other.

The story of Hazen and Linda may not be the kind of relationship that many people dream of but it is a realistic one, one that people with ailing loved ones will be able to relate to. Theirs is a story of unconditional love and perseverance between a couple who constantly struggled with unpredictable health issues but never failed to show their love for each other.
