Peg1 Steinberg was diagnosed not once — but twice — with cancer. Through the difficult times of bouncing in and out of good health, Peg and her son, Dan, recall the source of their strength: family unity2.

Time again for StoryCorps, where friends and loved ones interview each other about their lives. Today a conversation between a mother and son. Dan Steinberg brought his mother Peg to StoryCorps to talk about how their family has made it through her multiple bouts4 with cancer.

When I was 36, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Ten and a half years later it had reappeared in my skin, but I managed to come through it.

And since then you've had one more bout3 with cancer?

Yes, I have. Two years ago, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, but I now feel pretty good and so far, knock wood, the cancer is not there. My family has been like a rock to me, from when you were even little, when you both came to the hospital when I first had my mastectomies. You crawled in bed with me and we watched movies on the television. But the most amazing time was after my surgery for my ovarian cancer. You and Molly both said, "We were young before and you wanted to protect us, but now we are here for you. We are adults, and we wanna know what you are feeling so we can help you get through it. And that was very powerful.

The way that you are able to carry, carry...the way that you are able to carry yourself throughout the entire thing. You're still, you're still my mother, Molly's mother. And that hasn’t changed. I guess what has been hard for me is just facing up to the fact that, at some point, I know I'm gonna have to say goodbye to you. And I hope that’s not soon. But I guess part of me thinks it could be anytime.

If there’s anything I could change, in terms of my illness, it would be that I could just give you positive things in life, so that you wouldn't have had to deal with the fear of losing your mother.

The idea that you haven't been able to give us positive things is, I mean, somewhat absurd. I love you and you’ve always been a role model of how I should attack life, how I should live life.

You know what, honey, I’m very happy that you feel that way and I can’t imagine having been through any of this without all of you.

That's Peg Steinberg with her son Dan at StoryCorps in Martha's Vineyard. This interview will be archived along with all the others at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. You can subscribe5 to the StoryCorps at npr.org.
