For over a year now, I’ve participated in Visible Ink, a program through Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York. Visible Ink is a writing program that pairs participants, all patients who have experienced a serious illness, with professional writer-mentors.
My mentor, Kate has been one of my greatest supporters since the day we first met. Her kind, gentle encouragement has coaxed me into exploring ideas and areas that I hadn’t previously explored and I’ve often felt that she gets me more than I get me. She’s helped me define the inarticulable and she’s been present, right there with me as I’ve faced some of my darkest days. Kate and I were recently asked to be interviewed by Fusion TV to talk about our experience with Visible Ink and here is our TV debut!
