Hodgkin's Lymphoma documentary and the novel "On the Island"
When Jake Bouma of Des Moines was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma earlier this year, he and his wife decided to document his cancer journey on video. Host Charity Nebbe speaks with Jake and his wife, Libby, about their documentary.
Later, Charity will also talk with author Tracey Garvis Graves. She self-published the novel On the Island earlier this year and was recently offered a seven-figure deal with Plume, a division of Penguin Group. On the Island is a survival story that follows the developing relationship between a boy recovering from Hodgkin's Lymphoma and his tutor.
