In 1993, Sylvia Roba was diagnosed with breast cancer. “In the beginning,” she said, “I wrote to save myself from despair.” And what she wrote was a one-act play. Surprising, provocative, and even funny.

L.B. 4:15 was poignant and educational. A good reminder of the sometimes fragile human experience and our role and responsibility as healthcare providers in that experience.

Thanks for your stage presentation at my 15th Annual Concepts in Oncology Conference in Boise, Idaho. It really opened my eyes to a patient’s perspective of the medical profession. You were awesome!

Pippa White’s performance of L.B. 4:15 should be a must for all healthcare professionals. Her poignant portrayal of a woman diagnosed with breast cancer brings tears, smiles, and lessons. Any caregiver who views this performance will never approach patients the same way again. Pippa is the consummate professional, equally comfortable on a stage or in a classroom.
