The story of an unforgettable child's battle with cancer

Cancer is a terrible thing to face, especially when it afflicts a child.  Ellen Blair watched her daughter battle neuroblastoma for four-and-a-half years, and eventually succumb to the disease at age eight.  Ellen joins us to talk about The Catherine Elizabeth Blair Memorial Foundation that she and her husband created in their daughter’s honor, which has given $147,000 in grant money to-date to support research that helps children fighting the same disease.  She also reads stories from a book she and her husband wrote during Catherine’s final 15 months of life.  Ellen is joined by her son, John.    

The importance of staying in touch with people during and after they experience a serious trial.

A story from A Million Suns - Our Moments with Catherine, written by Tom Blair and Ellen Sullivan Blair, a collection of memories from Catherine's last 15 months of life.
