My Name is Kenny, I Can't Talk
Eight months into their newlywed year, Lynda Holler’s husband Kenny was diagnosed with oral cancer. Her handsome NYC Firefighter began a 21-year battle with that terrible, debilitating disease and by his side, Lynda became an expert on terminal cancer and suffering. Her experience has made her a witness to the truth that love, friendship, suffering, and death are all part of the human condition and that life has value not only through the joys, but also the sorrows.
In a culture that demands immediate gratification and avoids suffering at all costs, My Name is Kenny I Can’t Talk reveals the positive impact of embracing our lives through both the joys and the sorrows. Lynda Holler recognized that her husband was making an impression on people. She had heard random comments throughout their 22-year marriage and Kenny’s 21-year battle with head and neck cancer, but over his last two years it intensified. Acquaintances, almost strangers, medical professionals, and even children wanted to tell her what he meant to them and the impact his life was making on their lives. By the time the advancing cancer finally claimed his voice, she found written in his notebook, “My name is Kenny I can’t talk,” and a series of revelations regarding Kenny’s silent influence led to this book. This compilation of reflections from 207 people on their time with Kenny professes powerful truths on love, friendship, service, sacrifice, redemptive suffering and the inestimable value that ripples out from each of our lives to every other human being.
Men and women both will enjoy my book. I believe that it is appropriate for adults of all ages and even could appeal to some teens. I have an influence with and intend to market to seriously ill patients and their caregivers, medical professionals, Christians, Respect-Life Groups, firefighters, therapists, and reading groups.
