In an extension of his New York Times bestselling book Blindsided, author Richard M. Cohen depicts one year in the lives of five individuals who are living with serious chronic illness and their families. Listeners will be carried into the hearts and minds of those who cope with sickness daily and learn about selfdetermination, courage in the face of adversity and ignorance, keeping hope alive, and finding strength and peace.

Washington Post

“The strength of these profiles derives from Cohen’s focus on chronic illnesses that, as he notes, are not “sexy” and generally “do not resolve themselves”....these are stories dense with quotidian details.”
