No Cure for Being Human: And Other Truths I Need to Hear

This memoir goes deep into your heart as you sit alongside the author as she realizes that the life she has, the husband she is madly in love with, and her beautiful young son may be slipping from her grasp. At the age of 35, Kate learns that her body is riddled with cancer and all of her dreams and open doors are suddenly dashed and closed in an instant. As a professor at Duke Divinity School, she wrestles with our culture’s belief that you can outrun, out-believe, and beat our humanness. With incredible wit and grace, Kate begins to view her diagnosis, ambition, and faith through a new lens that will have you wishing you could hold her hand as she walks the road of uncertainty. The truth at the heart of the matter is: There is no cure for being human.
