    Bethany is a Mindset Coach, a Cancer Thriver, and author of her first book or as she puts it, her first book baby “My Guru Cancer.” A big proponent of living life to the fullest, Bethany is on a mission to help others find freedom with everything life brings, especially those curveballs. What I enjoyed most about the conversation with Bethany was how grateful she is for where she is today and her understanding that she would not have gotten here had she not been diagnosed with breast cancer.

TaraCoyote ,

Excellent & insightful podcast!

Bert is doing society a great benefit by talking in a honest and real manner about cancer, which sadly is affecting more people at a younger age. I find his podcast episodes refreshing, uplifting and enlightening. As someone who is also journeying with stage 4 cancer I totally resonate with his core message. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND everyone who has contact with cancer, which is pretty much everyone, to listen to his profound message!

Powerful insight

It’s not only important subject matter, but it’s insightful observations that will inform and *entertain* anyone facing cancer directly - or indirectly. Bert’s direct and thoughtful first-hand experience is tempered with his quick ability to find the humor - especially in the saddest of moments. Highly recommend.

Podcast for healing - about cancer and so much more

If you haven't listened to this podcast hosted by Robert Scholl, do yourself a favor and give a listen. Bert shows compassion, radical acceptance and deep listening skills. He offers good information for anyone who has experienced a traumatic event - not just those who have been affected by cancer. Might I suggest Season 2, Episode 1 for starters. Then, support this podcast on Patreon.com, which you can find on Bert's website, BertScholl.com.
