Summary
Tom Brokaw has led a fortunate life, with a strong marriage and family, many friends, and a brilliant journalism career. But in the summer of 2013, when back pain led Brokaw to the doctors at Mayo Clinic, his run of good luck was interrupted. Brokaw received shocking news: He had multiple myeloma, a treatable but incurable blood cancer. Brokaw takes us through all the seasons and stages of this surprising year, the emotions, discoveries, setbacks, and struggles. After Brokaw's diagnosis, he began to keep a journal, approaching this new stage of his life in a familiar role: as a journalist, determined to learn as much as he could about his condition, to report the story, and help others facing battles that are similar. That journal became the basis of this memoir, written wonderfully, the story of a man coming to terms with his own mortality, contemplating what means the most to him now, and reflecting on what has meant the most to him throughout his life. A Lucky Life Interrupted, generous, informative, deeply human, offers a message of understanding and empowerment, resolve and reality, hope for the future and gratitude for a life lived well. -- Provided by publisher, taken from container
