Over 4,500 patients are diagnosed with cancer each day. Not long ago, this diagnosis would have been considered a death sentence, but thanks to advances in treatment, there are almost fourteen million survivors in the U.S. Hearing the words "you have cancer" no longer has to mean an end to your life. Instead it can mark the start of a new beginning. Many people gain a new perspective on life after having it.
According to today's special guest, Bill Aron, 20 year cancer survivor, author and world renowned photographer of the beautiful book New Beginnings: The Triumphs of 120 Cancer Survivors, cancer proved to be "the best and worst thing that could happen in life" and was the impetus for soulful reevaluation and forging new beginnings.
His book, New Beginnings features the photographic portraits and narratives of 120 men, women, children and families from diverse backgrounds who have survived cancer. The book is a convincing testament to the indomitable human spirit and its ability to heal and begin anew. It inspires hope in all of us.
Bill Aron is here today to tell us his story, and to share the inspiration and hope he has gained through the stories of the 120 people of diverse backgrounds who comprise this book.
