Widows join forces to move forward after grief
(CBS News) When Becky Aikman's husband died of cancer, she was only in her 40s. But she decided to take on -- and conquer -- her grief.
But she didn't do it alone. After being kicked out of a traditional support group for wanting to focus on the future, and not just her loss, Aikman decided to start one of her own -- one with less talk, less gloom and more doing. She teamed up with other women with the same situation and drive and set out on a year-long adventure to remake their lives. Aikman's new memoir, "Saturday Night Widows," chronicles the stories of those six women who came together.
