Kingston's Oncology Support Program Memoir Group

   There is a remarkable new anthology - holding on, letting go that collects stories by people who've learned to look death in the eye and to savor life's gifts.

Bestselling author Abigail Thomas leads the Memoir Group at Kingston's Oncology Support Program of the HealthAlliance of the Hudson Valley. In 2011, after her daughter was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, Thomas volunteered to lead a five-week writing workshop. Nearly two years later, it's still going strong.

Abigail Thomas joins us along with Barbara Sarah, a breast cancer survivor, and one of book’s 15 contributors who founded the Oncology Support Program. We are also joined by two other contributors: Carol Dwyer and Craig Mawhirt.
