    To Google or Not To Google

    In our final episode, we continue to expand upon what caregiving looks like through the eyes of two women who have very different, non-traditional experiences for their parents. We examine the emotional side, the mental load, and the educational advocacy needed to sort through the deluge of information that comes with a cancer diagnosis. We are so quick to turn to Google for all of our answers to our medical questions. When Mari Hoffman’s dad was diagnosed with CLL, she found comfort in getting educated. She bonded with her dad through research, and they spent a lot of time together googling the latest CLL information. Mari went on to study genetics and genomics in college at UC Davis, where she is a recent graduate. Our other guest Michelle Stonis, a mom of three and a university professor from California, found the “google rabbit hole” very stressful. She made a conscious choice to stay away from googling until a few days before her mom’s battle with CLL came to an end. Join us for this inspiring conversation from two women in different phases of their lives as they share their very different approaches to caregiving.

    In Sickness and In Health

    In Sickness and In Health

    In a frank and candid conversation, two devoted husbands share the challenges and rewards of caring for their wives in different stages of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia or CLL. Relationships are tough on their best days, but it can add a whole new range of challenges when the person you love is battling cancer. Meet Scott Fuller and Ted Walsh, who talk candidly about their failures and successes as caregivers to their wives who have CLL. Ted Walsh lives in the Raleigh, Durham area of North Carolina and works in the biomedical industry. Ted found out that his wife Laura had CLL just three months before their wedding date. Laura is currently in what's known in the CLL world as the "watch and wait" phase -- often known to folks on the inside as "watch and worry." Our other guest is Scott Fuller from Trophy Club, Texas, where he's the director of golf course maintenance at a country club. Scott has been married for 32 years to his wife Christina, who was diagnosed with CLL in 2018. Christina has recently begun treatment and is participating in a clinical trial at UT Southwestern. Both Scott and Ted are two extraordinary men who are partners in their wives' CLL journey. Caregiver Lifehacks is a production of OffScrip Health. For more information visit https://offscrip.com
