A man, such as John Edwards or Brett Favre, who cheats on his wife while she is undergoing treatment for cancer or is in remission.
While he lovingly sat by his wife's side throughout her initial cancer diagnosis and treatment, his desire for intimacy led him to become a remissionary man by engaging in a torrid affair with his secretary.
