Cancer won’t seem to leave my family alone. My grandmother, my mother, my father. Then my daughter, her fifth Christmas spent in intensive care after 11 hours of brain surgery. A year later, it came for my wife. Our daughter sat looking small and frail, shielded by a pair of oversize pink headphones, as the radiologist struggled to tell us there were two large lesions in my wife’s brain.
"Science Might Save My Daughter. Don't Kill It." is from the January 28, 2017 Opinions section of The Washington Post. It was written by Alan Townsend and narrated by Jill Melancon.
