Lynn A. Shapiro


I earned a liberal arts degree from the University of Iowa in 1984. After a short stint in Chicago, I migrated to Los Angeles, and eventually, San Diego, where I now reside with my lovely wife. We have three adult children. I enjoy music, hiking and, in self-defense, cooking (my wife is vegetarian and I am not). I am a news junky and refresh my news feeds constantly. Isn't the world a remarkable place?

After starting our goal to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, cancer surprised us. Between surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, and side effects, we found our focus and continued to hike mountains. An inspiration and resource guide for cancer patients, loved ones, and hikers, it is my personal journal, hiking blog entries and essays on cancer. Every survivor story is different. Here is mine.
