Thank you for publishing the commentary by Debbie Tepper Glick in Sunday’s paper (“My fantasy game of ‘Cancer Jeopardy,'” Oct. 11). I have worked with cancer patients since 1971 and have had many friends and family members succumb to the disease. Her honest, touching and at times humorous personal experiences should be mandatory reading for anyone facing the dreaded diagnosis — including what to say and what not to say, or read.
The quotes in this op-ed are like none I have ever heard before, but should be in every oncology office. This opinion piece will be hanging on my refrigerator for a long time.
