Where: Braamfontein Campus West
Wits Club
Start time:18:00


Wits Alumni Relations hosts a discussion with alumna Lauren Segal, the author of Cancer: A Love Story.

Segal has survived four cancer diagnoses. She emerged from this terrifying journey having learnt more about the power of love and community, about courage and hope, and about writing as healing. Historian, researcher, author, film maker, museum curator – as well as wife, mother, daughter, friend –Segal has always been attentive to the stories and needs of other people. And even after her own ordeal, she still feels a calling to connect and to give, by sharing her experience.
