I am looking for submissions for the first micro-series focused on the topic of courage! If you are interested in being featured on the podcast, please make your submission by Saturday 4/16/22!

Like many, I’ve been following the latest developments in Ukraine and Russia for weeks now. While listening to the first-hand accounts from the war zone, I couldn’t help but notice some parallels between the experiences of the civilians and cancer people. I am not saying that the experiences are the same, but that when people are forced to deal with the unthinkable, we become courageous.

Being courageous does not mean we are fearless, but we get through despite the fears we have. It also does not mean that we get through in one piece; more often than not, we are never the same again. 

I am collecting your words and stories of courage. You can share in writing or as recordings. I will feature them (could be anonymous) on the podcast and in posts on social media in the coming months.

Here are a couple of prompts to help you get started with your reflections:

  • What is the scariest thing you and/or your cancer person have done?
  • What does courage look like when dealing with cancer?

You can submit your responses in written or audio format:

  • If you want to submit in writing (limit to 100 words), you can fill out this form
  • If you want to submit in audio format (limit to 5 mins), you can record a voice memo online by going to this page

If you prefer your submission to be published anonymously, please let me know in the form or your recording.

I may contact you via email if I need to clarify anything you’ve written/said or if your recording is unclear/incomplete.

If you have any questions, please email info@talkaboutcancerpodcast.com.

As always, I look forward to reading and listening to your experiences and sharing them with the cancer and caregiver communities.
