From a reader:
I’m writing from StoryCorps, America’s largest nonprofit national
oral history project. Because our broadcast this morning on NPR talks
about the experience of a family affected by multiple myeloma, I
thought it might be worth sharing with your readers. Please have a
Sy Saliba talks to his daughter, Yvette, about her mother, Pat, who
passed away from multiple myeloma, a type of blood cancer, in 2005.
StoryCorps is an independent nonprofit project whose mission is to
honor and celebrate one another’s lives through listening. Since 2003,
tens of thousands of people from across the country have interviewed
family and friends through StoryCorps. Each conversation is recorded
on a free CD to take home and share and is also archived for
generations to come at the Library of Congress.
