INTERLUDE

Medical >

A diagnosis of cancer is life changing. We spend so much time discussing treatment plans and physical side effects of treatment but we don't always have the opportunity to truly discuss how a cancer diagnosis affects a woman emotionally -- her feelings, worries, and fears. However, these conversations need to take place. In this podcast, we will have these difficult conversations. I will be speaking with women who are all at various stages of cancer treatment. We will talk about anything and everything related to the cancer experience. Many women feel overwhelmed or uncomfortable at in-person support groups or may not have anyone to discuss their experiences with. My hope is that this podcast will provide support, encouragement, inspiration, hope, courage, and most importantly, strength to women as they navigate through their own cancer journey. Cancer brings normal life to a halt. It creates an INTERLUDE. Let’s talk about it.
