Storytelling Podcasts >

The Bald Project podcast is a series of interviews from post chemo and radiation patients talking about all areas of their hair experience. From the moment they found out their diagnosis, how it effected their relationships, what to do when it all grows back and everything you can think of in-between. The hopes are to help new cancer patients know they aren't alone in their feelings and help support them in their own unique experience. I hope to expand these interviews to medical and other specialists to provide a variety of information. The website area that will contain resources and information is still under construction.If you feel like you have a story to tell or have tips, information and resources you'd like to share. Please visit me at thebaldproject.com Not matter where you are in the world, I'm sure we can make an interview happen.
