But Schimmel never lost his sense of humor, his searing honesty, and most of all, his passion to make people laugh. Indeed, it was his basic need to entertaineven if the only people around him were suffering from cancer and the room he was playing was the Mayo Clinic infusion centerthat carried him through his ordeal.
Alternately laugh-out-loud funny and deeply moving, Cancer on $5 a Day is a stirring account of how one man’s face-off with a deadly disease helped him better understand himself, and ultimately changed his life.
