Stations of the Heart (2013)

by Richard Lischer

This is a moving and important book by the father of a 33 yo man with metastatic melanoma.  It chronicles the last three months of Adam Lischer's life.  The book describes the medical, spiritual and philosophical aspects of Adam's death.  It's a valuable book.  I have typed out a few pages of quotations which I will eventually edit and link to this site.

There are many medical details that a dermatologist would like to know, but they are less important than the view from the family's standpoint.
