My Own Life: Oliver Sacks on Learning He Has Terminal Cancer

My Own Life,” written by Oliver Sacks, author and a professor of neurology at the New York University School of Medicine. In this article, Oliver Sacks shares his very personal response to learning he has terminal cancer. He writes, “I feel intensely alive, and I want and hope in the time that remains to deepen my friendships, to say farewell to those I love, to write more, to travel if I have the strength, to achieve new levels of understanding and insight.”
