Diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in her late 30s, and determined to find meaning in the loss of good health, Teva Harrison began documenting her thoughts and feelings through essays and comic illustrations. The result was "In Between Days: A Memoir About Living with Cancer." In 2016, she spoke with Steve Paikin about her diagnosis and her optimistic approach to living what was left of her life. Sadly, she died just three years later. Her final book, "Not One of These Poems Is About You," chronicled living with the disease as she prepared her loved ones for her death. In 2020, Harrison's husband, David Leonard talked about his life by her side as she fought cancer, and the reality of working through the loss of his life companion.
