About Blood Brother
A memoir of SUFFERING. THE INEFFABLE. COMEDY. A LOST BROTHER. And LOVE.
I never doubted I would survive cancer. Death was not an option.
I had faith in Western medicine, in pharmaceuticals, and in my body’s ability to heal.
I had faith in my doctors (well, most of them anyway).
With denial—cleverly disguised as reason—I convinced myself that everything was—and would be—fine, even in the face of the glaring opposite.
Praise for Susan's Work
“What I found were beautiful lessons, for doctor and patient alike. The prognosis for her particular cancer was dismal and her recovery arduous. But Susan presents the process with insight and even humor and joy.”
—Amy Ewing, M.D.
“A beautiful story of the strength of the human spirit and fierce determination to live. I hope that others who have been faced with a cancer diagnosis will also find inspiration, healing, and closure in reading this most compelling memoir… This book is insightful and illuminating.”
—Joanna Mimi Choi, M.D.
“From the first few engrossing pages, I was right there sharing Susan’s extraordinary experiences with her. Blood Brother gives hope to those who’ve lost theirs. There are happy endings after all.”
—Meryl Luallin, CEO, SullivanLuallin Group
