Nikhil Joshi should have spent the last several months enjoying his work and life like any other 27 year old.
He was a resident in internal medicine in St John's, and had a busy, active social life.
But last fall Nikhil found out he had cancer...and so the intervening months have been spent getting chemotherapy, and dealing with his diagnosis.
He has also spent the time talking to Canadians about his experiences, on his blog and on the radio.
And as more and more people engaged in a dialogue with him, he became more and more open.
Here is his story, from diagnosis to the end of treatment.
