The series was written and produced for public radio by David Freudberg and will air on WDET on April 23 and April 30 from 11am to 1pm. Each part of the series looks at a different facet of the survivor experience.

or not people of faith, cancer patients go deeply into themselves to ponder their lives. A rabbi whose daughter died of cancer teaches martial arts to young patients, helping them find inner strength.
