Former New York Times editor and writer, George Johnson, will be at Fox Chase Cancer Center to discuss his latest book, “The Cancer Chronicles.” In his ninth book science writer Johnson recalls the time when his wife was diagnosed with a metastatic cancer. He embarked on a journey to learn everything he could about the disease and the people who dedicate their lives to understanding and combating it.
What he discovered is a revolution under way—an explosion of new ideas about what cancer really is and where it comes from. In a provocative and intellectually vibrant exploration, he takes us on an adventure through the history and recent advances of cancer research that will challenge everything you thought you knew about the disease.

“Incisive…The Cancer Chronicles delivers an astute, vivid biography of perhaps the oldest, most complex disease on Earth, and a poignant account of a contemporary couple’s struggle against it.”
