NPR’s national audience got a chance today to meet Nora McInerny Purmort, who has become well known in the Twin Cities now because of her chronicling of her and her husband’s life since his cancer diagnosis.
Aaron Purmort died last week and was honored at a service this week.
“I want it to be out there,” she said of their story. “There’s no reason to keep it to myself.”
