Understanding Radiation Therapy and the Power of Empathy in Patient Care with Doctor EB

2/14/2024
In this heartfelt episode of Navigating Cancer TOGETHER, Talaya Dendy had the privilege of speaking with the remarkable Dr. Sophia Edwards-Bennett, MD Ph.D., a board-certified radiation oncologist with an impressive background from institutions like Harvard's Cancer Therapeutics and Research Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Cornell Medical College. Dr. EB. is not only a multiple award-winning radiation oncologist but also a cancer ambassador, best-selling author, dynamic international speaker, podcaster, YouTuber, and advocate for a holistic approach to cancer treatment. We delved into the intricacies of radiation therapy, a treatment that remains a mystery to many. Dr. EB explained that it involves high-energy X-rays to kill cancer cells and emphasized that patients do not feel pain during the treatment. She also discussed the criteria for recommending radiation therapy, which depends on factors like the cancer stage and patient comorbidities. We learn about Dr. EB's "why" and so much more!

From Ovarian Cancer to Finding Her Birth Mother: Nadean Stone's Inspiring Story

1/17/2024
In this made-for-movie episode, Nadean Stone reads excerpts from her memoir No Stone Unturned: A Remarkable Journey to Identity. Nadean was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 1981, at a time when very little information and resources were available. However, that is not where Nadean's story begins. Six days after her birth, her mother gave her up for adoption, which led to a 44-year search for her birth mother utilizing DNA technology and innovative detective skills. Her search challenged the laws in Ontario regarding non-adoptees access to their birth records. In July 2018, Nadean filed a petition with the UN Commission on the Rights of the Child illuminating numerous Articles of the UN Convention that the Province of Ontario has violated in its treatment of illegally adopted children. She is currently exploring the transformation of her memoir into a television series. ✨Highlights from the show: [00:02:25] Ovarian cancer diagnosis. [00:06:07] Difficult decision for more children.

How to Thrive Through Cancer with Guest Erika Wolf

12/13/2023
Nine years ago, at the age of 43, Erika Wolf faced an advanced form of breast cancer head-on. She underwent traditional oncology treatments, but it was the discovery of integrative medicine therapies that allowed her to thrive during treatment and throughout recovery. Erika learned that much of the American oncology community does not widely support the utilization of complementary therapies. She advocated for herself to find and incorporate these therapies so that her entire being was cared for and treated as robustly as the cancer itself. Therefore, it has become her passion to share this information with as many people as possible. She believes it is important for patients to be aware, but moreover, that physicians, nurses, and other caregivers accept the efficacy of complementary care and advocate for the inclusion of these modalities as a regular part of oncology care and recovery. Erika lives in the mountains of Colorado with her husband and two dogs. She has worked in marketing and PR for the past 30 years and is the director of digital marketing for a non-profit based in Denver, CO. ✨Highlights from the show: [00:02:40] Integrative medicine and cancer care.
