My father was diagnosed with leukemia in 1986 and he died less than a year later. At the time, no one spoke much about his illness (as if it would go away if we didnt) and I never heard anyone mention any other option besides medicine for my father or any of us who loved him. 
Eventually, years later, I figured out that writing and communicating in general about my father and cancer could be helpful, both for me and for those who have come into contact with either of them.

Write for Life––both the book and the foundation––are a continuation of these discoveries. Along the way, I have been fortunate to work on a number of related book projects. Here is a list of some of them:
