Sometimes in cancer communication research it's hard to get the patient experience, including the experience of loved ones. Sometimes it's impossible, when we're too distant from understanding what our patients and family members are really going through. Aleksandar Hemon, writing in the June 13 & 20th double issue of The New Yorker, does a beautiful crystalline job with life's most difficult task of retelling his family's ordeal with their baby daughter and her cancer. If you think you're getting the patient perspective in your data-collection, think again. Read Hemon's "The Aquarium: A Tale of Two Daughters."
