Matthew Tully - March 2017
The cancer experience is filled with questions. Questions about prognosis, treatment and it's overall toll on life. As an author, Matthew Tully makes a living out of asking and answering questions. However, he explains why cancer is the one thing he's not particularly interested in writing about.
As someone who would rather ask questions that have to answer them, he's realized that is a luxury not often awarded to those with cancer. Questions are a constant theme--coming from oncologists, neighbors, coworkers and concerned family and friends. Though Tully recognizes the questions are coming from those who care, he still finds uncomfortable talking about it as he feels he has little insight into his own situation and he wants to live as normal a life as possible, which to him means keeping his cancer experience a little more private and writing about other topics which interest him.
