Cheryl Jones, host of Good Grief radio, is proud to announce that her guest for June 8, 2016 will be Dr. Lucy Kalanithi. Her husband, Dr. Paul Kalanithi, was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer at 36 while in his last year of neurosurgical residency at Stanford. In the 22 months before his death, they continued their work as physicians, had a child, and he wrote a book about their experiences, When Breath Becomes Air, for which Lucy wrote the Epilogue. Since his death, she has continued the work they started; getting the book published, promoting it in numerous public appearances in venues such as PBS News Hour, Charlie Rose, NPR's Morning Edition, yahoo news with Katie Couric, and the New York Times and lending her voice to the ongoing effort to improve how medicine relates to patients during their lives and at their death. The dynamic intersection of her personal and professional experiences uniquely fuels her passion for improving healthcare value, meaning in medicine, patient-centered care and end-of-life care. She is an advisory member to the OpenIDEO challenge, seeking to answer the question, "How might we reimagine the end-of-life experience for ourselves and our loved ones?" The ideas generated by the campaign seek, ultimately, to change the way we approach the end of life in medicine and in the global community.
