When Lauren Segal, successful historian and curator, wife and mother, receives a call from her husband one wintry morning in 2014, the furthest thing from mind is her biopsy results. For two years she’s been living a cancer-free existence after a double mastectomy. The call shatters the foundation of her world as she hears the news – the lump she thought was scar tissue is malignant. Her cancer is back. Cancer: A Love Story is the intimately searing memoir of a four-time cancer survivor. The author leads the reader into her crumbling world as she confronts the terrors of treatment, from debilitating chemo to nuking radiation. But in her lonely horror, in a quest for deeper meaning, Lauren discovers the unexpected gift of awareness of unanticipated opportunities that cancer presents: to confront her unmasked humanity, fears, strengths and weaknesses.
