Michael J. Russer and Jacqueline V. Lopez are partners who work together to help others understand the challenges of maintaining a romantic relationship while being faced with cancer. They are aware, and experience every day, the possibilities of changing these challenges into extraordinary emotional, sexual and spiritual intimacy.
Their mission is to “assist cancer survivors and their partners around the world to achieve these same levels of intimate fulfillment regardless of the circumstances of their disease.” As authors, they have provided a free electronic version of their latest book, “Return to Sex & Intimacy – For Cancer Survivors and Their Partners.” As intimacy coaches, they also provide free monthly sex and intimacy Q&A phone sessions to anyone who wants to join.
Russer is an ongoing two-time cancer survivor, a 20+ year international professional speaker, TEDx alumnus, author and radio co-host who happens to be clinically impotent due to castrate-resistant prostate cancer. He has written more than 100 articles, several of which have been published by Huffington Post, MariaSchriver.com and Coping with Cancer magazine. He considers his impotence to be “one of the biggest blessings” in his life. Because of his impotence, he and his partner, Lopez, discovered an entirely new approach to experiencing levels of emotional and sexual intimacy and connection that “far exceeds anything either had prior to when things were working ‘correctly’.”
Lopez is Russer’s life partner, professional speaker, and author and radio host. As a native of Brazil and Paraguay, she speaks four languages fluently. Her cultural diversity allows her to bring a different perspective to their work. Through her unique relationship with Russer as a post-menopausal partner of a fully impotent cancer survivor, she has been creative in developing the female perspective on how to achieve extraordinary intimacy at any age and under any circumstances.
