February: When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi

If you haven't read this memoir yet, do it soon.  Kalanithi was finishing up his neurosurgery training when he was diagnosed with Stage IV lunch cancer, and this book is an exploration of what it means to be on both sides of the diagnosis.  What happens when a doctor suddenly faces imminent mortality?  How do you reframe what is really important in life when you never expected it to end so soon?

Facilitated by:  Mia St.Clair, Doctor of Occupational Therapy Candidate, Student Occupational Therapy Association Vice-President | Midwestern University - Downers Grove
