Later this week, Fox Chase Cancer welcomes breast cancer survivor, Kelly Corrigan, New York Times bestselling author of “The Middle Place” and “Lift.” The authors’ event takes place on Thursday, November 17 at 7 p.m. with a book signing and catered reception.
Corrigan lives deep within what she calls the Middle Place— “that sliver of time when parenthood and childhood overlap”—comfortably wedged between her adult duties and her parents’ care. But she’s abruptly shoved into a coming-of-age when she finds a lump in her breast and gets the diagnosis no one wants to hear. And so Kelly’s journey to full-blown adulthood begins. When her father, George, learns he has late-stage cancer, it is Kelly’s turn to take care of the man who had always taken care of her — and show us a woman as she finally takes the leap and grows up.
The book signing event will take place in the Fox Chase auditorium. There is no cost, but seating is limited, so registration is required. To register, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, call 215-214-3954 or go to www.foxchase.org/authors.
