Patients Are a Virtue: Reflections on Living with Cancer

Nothing But The Truth Tent

Two authors diagnosed with cancer at very different times in their lives – 37 and nearly 60 – respond to the devastating news through their art. Teva Harrison has turned her experience with cancer into a moving memoir in graphic novel format. Kenneth Sherman, a poet, has documented his experiences within the health care system through eloquent prose. Both delve into the deep connection between illness and creativity. This talk is essential for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer.
