    OAW: Ottawa native chronicles cancer battle and medical ordeals through powerful poetry

    Brad Buchanan grew up in Ottawa and attended Glebe Collegiate before post-secondary education and teaching university English brought him to the United States.

    The Professor Emeritus of English at Sacramento State University puts those lyrical powers to good use in "Chimera," a new poetry collection chronicling and confronting a 2015 cancer diagnosis and the 2016 stem cell transplant that nearly killed him, leaving him disabled and with a new illness: chronic Graft-versus-Host Disease.

    Brad joins Patricia Boal for a wide-ranging conversation into coming up in Ottawa, his challenging medical experiences, and translating that into poetry.
