After They Told Me I Had Cancer: Essay --- J. M. Jacobson | Numéro Cinq
What Julie Jacobson does in this essay, stripped down and simple, a list-essay in form and inspiration, is deliver the experience --- the terror, the waiting, the struggle for certainty, the people who helped and the people who didn't, the utterly human moment when cancer upends life and nothing is ever ordinary again --- you can't ask for more.
