"Those in search of another treacly cancer memoir need not even glance at this... Reisman's unflinching and moving tale puts to rest the image of patient as warrior. By linking her own ordeal to the triathlon she took on to mark her 10 year anniversaryshe reveals the true nature of cancer survival — not as a triumph of epic valor, but as a feat of endurance, forbearance and true grit."

—Lisa Sanders, MD, New York Times columnist and fellow cancer survivor

Hosted by the National Brain Tumor Society, this event is designed to raise icy-cold water awareness and much-needed resources for brain tumor-specific programs and research. It's the first of its kind in Connecticut. 

I'll be speaking on my recovery from a glioblastoma multiforme, the inspiring people I've met since getting involved with the National Brain Tumor Society, and the crucial nature of funds for research on this ruthless disease.
