Description

Watching her daughter chase a balloon through a graveyard, Dr. Lucy Kalanithi comes to realize that maybe she can learn from four-year-old Cady. After the death of her husband, Dr. Paul Kalanithi, author of "When Breath Becomes Air," Lucy focuses on Cady, on teaching Cady how to deal with grief and loss. But as Cady bounds through the cemetery, on the way to see her dad, she teaches Lucy. She sees things that Lucy misses. She doesn’t bring as many assumptions to situations, so it’s easier for her to see them as they are. For Cady, right now, at this age, things just are.

Read "When Breath Becomes Air."

I was delighted to find this and delighted by it. I have read “When Breath Becomes Air" four times over the last two years. For me, the book itself is a meditation. I am now a cancer survivor and was helped to face the possibility of death with grace and courage. Hearing how Lucy and Katie are doing has helped me to become fully aware that death does not have to break the relationship between those that continue to live after their loved one must leave. Thank you and Happy 2020 to all of you!
