Leroy Sievers is a great writer and story teller. NPR morning listeners know him through his blog and regular radio features about his battle with cancer.
His blog, My Cancer, is a daily chronicle of his life as he deals with cancer treatment. It can be touching, funny, scary, and heart-wrenching.
In his own words: "As we go forward, no topic, no matter how painful, is going to be off limits. Because if we don’t talk about it, who will?"
Do yourself a favor and read his blog.
