Suzanne Leigh

Health Reporter, Essayist, Blogger

Suzanne Leigh is a freelance health reporter, whose assignments have included toenail fungus, diets and head lice. That was until her elder daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor, when those topics began to seem a bit trivial. Suzanne documents her daughter’s diagnosis, re-diagnosis and death -- and her own new life as a bereaved mom -- on her blog The Mourning After Natasha. She also takes on those issues that have ticked off the parents of children with cancer.
