Inspiration: Suleika Jaouad

One of my favorite ‘reads’ for the past 18 months or so has been the Well Section of the New York Times. Besides interesting articles, they also have a number of regular writers/bloggers that I am drawn to. One of these favorites is Suleika Jaouad, a wonderful writer, whose column “Life, Interrupted“, gives a strong and vibrant voice to an underrepresented community: young adults with cancer.

Suleika’s first column was published in March 2012 as she was undergoing a bone marrow transplant, while her most recent shares her experience at this year’s News and Documentary Emmy Awards–where she was a nominee.

Suleika’s writings always encourage me to look at life with a slightly different slant and they give me a great deal of inspiration.

  1. So, doctors in both Paris and NY diagnosed her with “burnout syndrome” and “depression” before they got to what she really had, delaying her treatment?? So frustrating at any age….well-written blog…thanks for directing us to her!
