(Host) Imagine receiving not one, but two flawed diagnoses from respected physicians, who said you had very little time to live.
Now imagine you get this information in the midst of a bitter fight to retain your job, facing opposition from some people you’ve worked with for years.
Imagine working through all of it, only to discover years later that a new diagnosis of cancer is correct, and you still keep working.
If you’re Republican Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, you don’t have to imagine it: You’ve lived it. Specter tells the story in his new book, "Never Give In: Battling Cancer in the Senate."
He says his work on the Hill was actually a great help during a dark time.
