Monocycle: Episode 41, Surviving Cancer in Your Twenties

Leandra Medine | October 28, 2016

Before Breast Cancer Awareness month ends, here is one more point of awareness in the form of a Monocycle podcast interview with Fashionista.com’s executive editor, who was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer when she was 21. Given the overwhelming financial resources that have been allocated towards research, we are uniquely positioned at this juncture to feel less helpless at the hand of breast cancer. As mentioned in a round table that ran earlier this month, though, it is precisely these resources that have taken us this far, and will continue to move us towards the goal of a world free of breast cancer. So, if you would like to donate, please click here.

If you can’t, that’s okay, just be there when your people need you — and have the courage to reach out when you need your people.

    Thank you for sharing this. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer during college and went through radiation treatments and two surgeries. The emotional roller coaster that is summed up here is exactly what happened to me. The best gift is for survivors to share their stories with other survivors and it’s a blessing whenever anyone takes the initiative to do just that. Thank you Man Repeller!
