Learan & Andrea / by Jamie Courville

A linguist told me "squirrels" is the hardest word to say in the English language. I started a project called Squirrels Stories for the things that are difficult to talk about.

Learan lost his wife to breast cancer a year ago. Now he is a single parent to two boys. 


Andrea is coming out the other side of chemo for Stage 3 breast cancer. It has not been an easy road. 

Update: It has been over 6 months since Andrea’s last cancer treatment. She said being sick was like a dream.



Squirrels Stories by Jamie Courville is a collection of stories; it is a place for things that are difficult to talk about; it is where these amazing audio portraits were originally published.
