Theresa Brown: Healing

Alphabet City 40 W. North Avenue, Pittsburgh

In her new book, "Healing," former oncology nurse Theresa Brown vividly chronicles her journey from the mammogram appointment that would change her life to her diagnosis, treatment, and recovery. Despite years working in oncology and hospice, Brown is constantly surprised by the lack of compassion she experiences during her treatment. And she can’t help reflecting on her time caring for patients. Did she treat them with the dignity and respect that she now craves? What could she have done to make other people’s suffering even a little bit easier?
