Description

Dionne Warner is a fun-loving, seven-time cancer survivor who dresses in costume and dances into her chemotherapy treatments in Regina, SK alongside her humour-filled husband Graham, bringing laughter and hope to everyone they meet. When Dionne was diagnosed in 2001 with her third cancer, she told her then-fiancé that he did not have to marry her; she would return to her home and doctors in Toronto, Ontario. An experienced pilot, Graham quickly replied, “You never leave your wingman.” Since then, Dionne and Graham have battled this disease head-on together, with humour, strength, courage and a zest for life. This is an inspiring true story and a lesson in love.

Editorial Review

“Driver writes in simple prose, as she doesn’t need to dazzle us with flowery or overly poetic language. Dionne and Graham’s candid story is enough to inspire. Nor are we treated to a sob-story. Dionne is a real woman, who likes Whoppers, angel trinkets, worries about her sex life, is concerned for others, and wears elaborate costumes to chemo treatment. And Graham is there for her.
Never Leave Your Wingman is the hopeful story we all need.”
