From Shadows to Life: A Biography of the Cancer Survivorship Movement Out of Patients with Matthew Zachary

    • Health & Fitness

On the show today, Judith L. Pearson, triple-negative breast cancer survivor, patent advocate, and author of the new book, From Shadows to Life: A Biography of the Cancer Survivorship Movement. If you're a long-time listener, you already know that if I had to fanboy around only one cancer advocacy organization, it would obviously be Stupid Cancer BUT, if one more slot opened up, it would be the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship or NCCS as it is called because acronyms are our friends. This book is a labor of love that digs into the past 50 years of cancer advocacy and blends medical history with a group biography of average citizens who created a social movement that continues to this day to help millions of people when they hear the words. "You have cancer."
