David & Betsy / 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.

David is waiting for the pathology report after surgery to remove a tumor from his kidney. You can hear some of his radio work here.

Betsy has been out of the woods for ten years after a battle with a rare and deadly fallopian tube cancer. If you would like to talk to Betsy about her experience write to me here

Here is Betsy’s advise for others who may receive the same diagnosis.

Betsy, before and after.

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.
