“I think courage isn't about looking like Grace Kelly as we walk into the lion‘s den. It‘s about being stinking afraid and walking in anyway.”

So says Patrice Rancour, a strikingly humane, honest, funny, and poetic new voice, as she ushers readers through the 32 encounters in this day-in-the-life at a modern-day cancer hospital, her pager serving as her link from one human in need to the next, while she tends and ministers to both the living and the dead.
