Radio Interview with Stupid Cancer
January 21, 2014 |
Last night, Alexis Feldman, chair of the CRI Young Philanthropists Council, and I had the pleasure of appearing for an interview with the hosts at The Stupid Cancer Show. The program, which is a project of StupidCancer.org, helps to provide information to young adults diagnosed with cancer and give them a voice.
Last night’s episode titled, “What the Hell is Immunotherapy?” gave me a chance to share with Stupid Cancer’s listeners some of the exciting breakthroughs that are transforming cancer treatment. I also discussed how Cancer Research Institute has been behind these advances over the past 60 years.
Alexis shared her perspective on how young people are increasingly becoming interested in cancer, as it’s no longer viewed as a disease for the elderly, but one that threatens young people, too. She also described how the CRI Young Philanthropists are helping to increase awareness about CRI’s work and the power of immunotherapy to save lives.
Also appearing in the show is Huffington Post blogger and cancer survivor/activist Dan Duffy, who shared with us some of his experiences sharing his cancer story and how the power of blogging is helping to address important issues in cancer patient care.
