Father and Son Sharing the Experiences of Illness

There's a nice personal profile and video compilation by an editor of the New York Times discussing how he and his son have both dealt with serious, life-threatening illnesses, and how that has affected their perspectives on life and their relationship. Both have experienced being the patient, each at a young age, and being the supporting family member.

I admire how open they are to each other about their experiences and how it affected them emotionally. From my perspective, I think this probably helps them both to process the experiences and deal with their ongoing treatment.
