New Interview by The Entertainment Critic: Lois M. Ramondetta, MD, Co-Author of The Light Within


Please check out the new interview by James Myers, The Entertainment Critic, of Co-Author Lois Ramondetta, M.D., About Her New Top Selling Book, The Light Within. Lois M. Ramondetta, M.D., is an attending physician and associate professor of gynecologic oncology at the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. She has published and lectured extensively on the care of gynecologic cancers as well as written reflective articles for academic journals. This is a special book about the friendship that developed between patient and doctor. The result is this soaring memoir.

From The Publisher: When young gynecologic oncology fellow Lois Ramondetta was first summoned to the room of a new patient, neither she nor the forty-nine-year-old professor of religion she encountered named Deborah Sills thought they had much in common. They certainly had no idea that they were about to embark on a transcendent odyssey that would become a soul-deep friendship. Now their heartfelt story, The Light Within, follows these two women through a decade of friendship and "big lives"—husbands, children, friends, and careers—ultimately crossing the country and traveling to foreign lands, where they spoke and wrote together about the intersection of doctors, patients, and spirituality. Both women searched together and openly for answers with honesty and intimacy until Deborah passed away in the spring of 2006.
