Cancer sucks, but that doesn't mean we can't laugh at it! Please like, share and follow. While you're at it, shoot us a message, tell us what you think and make some suggestions for us to talk about and people to talk to. Find us @dyinglaughingpodcast on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.We met on the 7th floor at The Hersey Spa and Cancer center while we were both in treatment. One thing leads to another and now were sitting behind a pair of microphones sharing our stories. We feel that as survivors, we all have an obligation to reach out to those who are new to the Cancer Club. This is how we have decided to help initiate the newbies, give those fighting something to laugh at, and give a little perspective to those who are helping the cancer fighters. Hopefully you enjoy us, and keep liking and subscribing!
Getting diagnosed with cancer has a profound effect on your mental health, and that part of treatment does not seem to have the same emphasis as the physical side of the equation. That makes sense, you have to stay alive to work on your mental health, but like most things the mental/physical health equation isn't an either/or but a both/and.
Please remember that we are NOT in any way, shape or form medical professionals, and this is really just our experiences and observations. We make no claims that how we have handled our mental health is even good way to do it, this is just the way we did. If you feel like you do need to talk to someone we cannot stress enough how important it is to speak to your doctor or mental health professional!
So, you just found out that you have cancer, but you don't now much more than that. What do you do with that beachball of information you are trying to hold underwater? How do you break the news to your family, friends, the rest of the world? Spoiler alert, you do it any way you want to, but do it deliberately because the narrative is just about the only thing you have any control over with this disease.

Season 2 is on the way! But first, let's raise some money for the LLS!
What is up all you dying laughers!!!! We are getting ready for season 2 to drop but first things first... Oya has been nominated as the Man (and Woman...) of the year for the LLS and we are going to do all that we can help raise as much as we can.... We talk about making Tim suffer for your money because he doesn't know how to do anything with out making it a competition somehow. Here is the link for Tim's fundraiser page:
Every mile I ride is up for sponsorship between April 19th and Memorial day weekend. If you would be interested in donating in that way please email us here at email@example.com and I will let you know where we are at after the last weekend in May. Of course you can still just give a fixed amount too, and we will gladly take it. But where is the fun in that, amiright?
Episode 6: Didn't See That Coming?!
Where do breakfast, fundraising, hip hop awards, Steven King, classical guitar and chemo brain all overlap? Right here in episode 6 where we discuss some of those things that we did not expect to happen as we live our life after treatments.
What did you not see coming? Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on the socials @dyinglaughing and let us know! We love hearing from the dying laughing nation!
Episode 5: Caregivers
It has been a minute, but we’re back with a new episode every 2 weeks! In today’s episode we talk about the roll that the caregivers play in the fight. Just because they aren’t sick doesn’t mean they aren’t impacted by the disease. Without their help we’d all be up the creek....
