A look back at the life of Lauren Terrazzano, a Newsday reporter who chronicled her three-year struggle with lung cancer. Terrazzano, who wrote the weekly column, Life, With Cancer, died Tuesday at age 39. She said she wrote the column because she felt traditional journalism did not do enough to describe living with the disease.
