Bill Aron (T-2), 
Photographer
Bill's third book of photographs, New Beginnings: The Triumphs of 120 Cancer Survivors, consists of interviews and photographic portraits of 120 cancer survivors, ages 2 through 99.  New Beginnings explores the question of what happens during the "silent phase" of cancer after treatment ends, when the flurry of treatment and doctor's appointments is replaced with a gaping silence.  Jane E. Brody, the NY Times health columnist, wrote the introduction with prefaces by Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary), U.S. Congressman Henry Waxman, and Rabbi David Wolpe.  The book has 224 pages with 160 full color photographs.  For more on Bill Aron, see his website: billaron.com.
