Last year a friend who was dealing with cancer in his family sent me a link to the audio archives of NPR’s All Things Considered.
The specific link I have included is for the audio of Debra Jarvis, a hospital chaplain for 20 years, who was diagnosed with cancer. As she told people about her diagnosis, she found all they wanted to talk about was her hair.
If you have cancer or have ever had a friend or family member with cancer (and who hasn’t?), listening to this is worth your time (3 minutes and 48 seconds).
Note: I first shared this link on my blog in June of 2007, but I thought this would be a good time to share it again.
