The Lives They Lived - Lisa Bonchek Adams

Elizabeth Weil remembers Lisa Bonchek Adams, who had the courage and honesty to understand that her greatest gift was to tell the truth about what it feels like to die.

"Part diarist, part Dear Abby, she chronicled her experience with cancer — dispensing insight and advice, avoiding euphemism and sentimentality. The value of a friend who texts: ‘‘Running to Costco. Need anything?’’ The strangeness of waiting in a gas-station line with chemo pills in your purse. The importance of sending your children and spouse on vacation so they realize they can survive without you."
