Informative, engaging, inspiring!

What an incredible podcast... I would recommend this highly to anyone who has cancer or knows someone with cancer. Each episode covers a unique theme, and areas that although critical, may not be covered by your doctor in enough detail, or at all... like how to tell your kids you have cancer, dealing with a cancer diagnosis, and much more!
