On May 22, I wrote about the New York Magazine feature that included the stories of fourteen cancer survivors living in New York City. If you have not had the opportunity to read it, go to my article Our Stories.

The cover picture of the magazine shows 143 survivors standing together on a glorious spring day in the Sheep Meadow of Central Park. While we were all being processed through the bureaucracy we had the opportunity to mill around and meet each other. Conversations were easy to strike up as all of us felt a very special bond with one another.

Circulating among us was a videographer, Jonah Green, who has produced a very moving video. What comes through from the video is the power of the human spirit.
