Redux: Cracking My Family's Mysteries

In 20 years as a television journalist, Carol Lin got used to stories with bad endings: wars, depravation, disease. You've probably seen her on CNN; Carol was an anchor there. But nothing really prepared her for this news: her mom has cancer. That was months ago. There have been many changes since then and lessons worth sharing. In this archival interview, Carol agreed to tell her story.

This segment was originally broadcast on May 27, 2008.
