New York Times Best-Selling Author Kate Bowler Gets Real With Cancer Patients

Press Release

Mar 30, 2022

Wellness House presents No Cure for Being Human, a free online event, Thursday, April 14

Chicago area-based nonprofit Wellness House invites cancer patients and their families to a special online event featuring New York Times best-selling author Kate Bowler – No Cure for Being Human on Thursday, April 14. In the wake of a sudden stage IV colon cancer diagnosis at the age of 35, Kate Bowler was left asking the question: How do you move forward with a life you didn’t choose? That’s what many cancer patients face as they are suddenly thrust into the reality of life after a cancer diagnosis. During this free event, Kate will share how she re-examined the way she was living with unflinching honesty and light-heartedness in her newest book, No Cure for Being Human. Participants will hear how she finds hope, courage, and truth – without the insincere positivity that our world can overwhelm us with – and be inspired to discover a new perspective on the human experience. 

Wellness House presents free informational events so that people affected by cancer can be prepared and empowered to live life fully with cancer. Over 500 free programs are available online and in-person to address the whole person during and after cancer. This online event is presented to anyone affected by cancer. To register for this program, call 630.323.5150 or visit

“We are as fragile as the day we were born, and we will need each other if we’re going to tell the truth: Life is beautiful and terrible, full of hope and despair and everything in between, but there’s no cure for being human.” – Kate Bowler
