425: Slow To React
Act Three

I'm Still Here

"Slow to react" is usually an insult. But in this case the things that are slow...are cancer cells. Which is kind of how you want it. Producer Jonathan Menjivar tells this story about Katherine Russell Rich, who has lived with stage IV breast cancer for 18 years. Katherine is a writer whose most recent book is called Dreaming in Hindi. The discussion board that Katherine mentions in the story is online at breastcancer.org. (11 1/2 minutes)
