This Is An Incredible Gift To All Cancer Survivors

Lee's show is a fantastic resource and an incredible gift to ALL survivors, as well as their families, friends, medical staff, and support systems. His gentle, velvety voice is soothing and inviting and he builds great rapport with his guests, even when talking about some of the scariest and otherwise most off-putting of topics.

Inspirational, educational and valuable

Lee does a fantastic job sharing about a serious difficult topic--having colon cancer. Honestly this podcast is for anyone either who has cancer, has a family member or friend with cancer, of just to educate yourself about this disease. Sooner or later we come across someone who has cancer and it is difficult for anyone how to handle it. Lee and his guests provide valuable information on how to help someone, support them, understand it, and live with it. Thank you!
