I Know the Feeling


This past New York Times-Sunday Review had an article, written by Paul Kalanithi, a 36-year-young, non-smoking neurosurgeon diagnosed with lung cancer.  It's entitled, "How Long Have I Got Left?"  Although Dr. Kalanithi doesn't specifically say what type of lung cancer he has, he is being treated with an oral medication that has allowed him to return to work.  It's a poignant and well written article and I relate to so much of what he writes about.  

Here's the link:

Thanks to Andrea and Annie for calling my attention to this article.
