The Things I Thought About When My Body Was Trying to Kill Me

There’s already plenty of good medical journalism where you can find out about diagnosis, treatment, the latest research…the science of fighting cancer. But if you’re one of the millions diagnosed, or helping somebody live with cancer, or come to terms with dying of the disease, you already know: There’s not always good information, not always good advice, about how to think through the fact that you might be dying, or how to think about how your life has been changed, if you live. So I wrote one. Sufferers, survivors, care-givers may all hear the stories I tell in slightly different ways. It’s a cancer memoir. I called it, “The Things I Thought About When My Body Was Trying to Kill Me.” Listen. Subscribe. It’s unlike anything I’ve ever done in more than 40 years as a journalist. I hope you’ll listen.
