Conversations for cancer patients and survivors.
How do I become an A+ patient and survivor? That is, how can I do everything in my control to live as long as I can with the best quality of life? What do I read? Who do I listen to? How do I lose the least from this setback and gain the most from it? How do I make the best treatment decisions and then prepare for and execute each step of that treatment? How do I best mitigate and recover from the physical, emotional, and mental burdens? How should I think about the impact to my lifestyle and adjust it to match a new reality? What are the tips and tricks those who’ve gone before me already know that I don’t know yet?
Chris Sis asks and discusses cancer related topics with survivors, doctors, researchers, and others.

Highly Anticipating More
Wonderful work you’re doing here, Christopher. Your soothing and nurturing voice tells a continuous journey in thoughtful detail with precise narrative. I appreciate the outline and how easily you bring everything together for listeners....I’ve already subscribed to keep updated and look forward to hearing more from such a special mind.
Love the Title!
You’ve creatively reframed the image most have of cancer being a destructive force into one of unlimited possibilities it can also allow.
I appreciate how you’re turning this tremendous challenge into an opportunity to reach out and connect with others while providing an outlet and resource for people to express themselves and their experiences, and give/receive ideas.
Your willingness to step out of your comfort zone to follow your heart is inspiring, and your vulnerability and humility are refreshing. I’m sure I speak for many when I say “thank you.”
