Quote:With the fascinating scholarship of The Emperor of All Maladies and the deeply personal experience of When Breath Becomes Air , a world-class oncologist examines the current state of cancer and its devastating impact on the individuals it affects -- including herself.
In The First Cell , Azra Raza offers a searing account of how both medicine and our society (mis)treats cancer, how we can do better, and why we must. A lyrical journey from hope to despair and back again, The First Cell explores cancer from every angle: medical, scientific, cultural, and personal. Indeed, Raza describes how she bore the terrible burden of being her own husband's oncologist as he succumbed to leukemia. Like When Breath Becomes Air , The First Cell is no ordinary book of medicine, but a book of wisdom and grace by an author who has devoted her life to making the unbearable easier to bear.
