Time on Fire: My Comedy of Terrors

Time on Fire: My Comedy of Terrors - Evan Handler After he was diagnosed with Leukemia in his early 20s, he was treated at the best cancer treatment center in the U.S., where he was forced to spend his sickest hours resisting sloppy, callous and medically dangerous treatments, such as medications to which he was known to have potentially fatal reactions.

Somehow his recovery process proved adequate, because the young actor-in-training I'd read about so many years ago became quite successful.
