Roy Barreras in conversation with Andrea Bernal

Dances with death

Cartagena 2024, 

Through his book Bailando con la muerte (Dancing with Death), doctor and politician Roy Barreras (Colombia) will share his experience on treating and curing his own cancer. Barreras has written this book with the aim of providing support to all those who have faced cancer, as well as to the families of patients who have suffered from this challenging disease. His work represents a clear invitation to face the most primordial ancestral fear of all human beings, which is the fear of dying, transforming it into the pleasure of living with a purpose. In conversation with Andrea Bernal.
