ABOUT THE INTERSECTION OF CANCER AND LIFE
The Intersection of Cancer and Life is a conversational look at the lives we rebuild for ourselves after a cancer diagnosis. Host Emily Garnett and guests discuss the changes, challenges, and unexpected shifts that have occurred while living with cancer. These conversations emphasize the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to rebuilding a life after diagnosis, and creates a space to better understand the lives we lead with cancer. This podcast lets listeners know that they are not alone, whether they themselves have been diagnosed with cancer, or have a friend or loved one navigating treatment.
