I so loved talking to Dr. Lucy Kalanithi about her husband’s words, “When Breath Becomes Air.” It was such a moving interview for me because of my own personal experience and I admire how Lucy and Paul handled his diagnosis with such courage and grace. I was embarrassed because I got so emotional and Lucy was so stoic, but as I face the 18th anniversary of my own husband’s death, I realized as Lucy told me, love never dies.

Please take the time to watch my interview on Yahoo News.
