    "The Emperor of All Maladies" was a fascinating read for me. Starting in nursing school in the mid-60's I was a nurse for over 30 years. Much of that was spent with patients with cancers of various types, including 2 years at Boston Children's Hospital. I have cared for hospice patients and patients with AIDS relaterd cancers. During this time my own father died of malignant melanoma. So reading this book was like a journey into my past.
    If I knew how to get in touch with Dr. Mukjaree I'd send him a fan letter.
    Thanks for posting this.
