Minnesota op-ed columnist Caryn Sullivan, who raised a son with autism, supported her daughter through a health crisis, survived breast cancer herself, and lost her husband, Ted, way too soon, believes that healing is a choice.
In “Bitter or Better,” Caryn reminds us that in the face of any challenge to the human spirit, healing is a choice. Even when the challenges seem insurmountable.
Caryn’s memoir includes entries from the CaringBridge site she kept for daughter, Julia, who had a bone marrow transplant as a fifth-grader, to treat a rare blood disorder called PNH. (Today, Julia’s health is stable and she is doing great!)
