Cancer soundtrack helps heal mind, body and soul

I’m writing this from the Duke Cancer Clinic in Durham. I’ve been here a million times before, but today I’m just thinking back, reflecting, because I learned a lot during my treatments. Back in 2007, I was diagnosed with a kind of colorectal cancer that, statistically speaking, made me a total anomaly. The diagnosis came in March and the treatments began in April — that was also when a teenager at my church gave me a Red Hot Chili Peppers cD he put together, mixing songs from their Stadium Arcadium double album. Still, more than just the Chilis, getting through those two months of radiation and chemo treatments, I needed a lot of music and I was surprised at the diversity of music that gave me what I needed.
