01: Death by a Thousand Cuts (Part 1)


When a diagnosis of ALS turned former Travelers Insurance CEO Jay Fishman's world upside down, he leaned into his disease. But acceptance never comes easily, and there was much to be learned in Jay's journey through his illness. In Part 1 of our premiere episode, Jay tells the story of how he's coped with his ALS and how he redefined his world to move forward after his difficult diagnosis. We also meet Jay's doctor and learn about the close partnership they formed, which allowed them to tackle tough medical decisions together. We learn that behind any well-considered medical decision is a series of dialogues with the people we hold dear about the things that matter most.
