Writer and funny woman Chloe Reeson thought she was just tweeting jokes about a routine mammogram; she didn't know she was live-tweeting the discovery of her breast cancer. The story of Chloe's cancer diagnosis is equal parts funny and sad, like this episode.
At twenty-two years old, Chloe has already had a mastectomy and is halfway through chemotherapy. She sits with me in my backyard the day before her ninth chemo session to talk about wisdom, having a good head for hats, and falling in love with her surgeon. She tells me morphine is not as good as people think it is, lady doctors are the best, and cancer is a life sentence even if you survive it.
