Author Caroline Wright on navigating her terminal cancer diagnosis with her two children

What would you do if you had a year to live?

That question is theoretical for most of us, but not for Seattle-based writer Caroline Wright, who was given a year to live after being diagnosed with glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer.

Wright’s message to her sons is contained in a new children’s book called “Lasting Love.” She spoke with MPR’s Cathy Wurzer about the book, and her experience since her diagnosis.
