In collaboration with Send It Foundation, we bring you The Cancer Patient podcast! 

In the first episode, we’ll meet hosts Carlo & Wendy. Carlo is a two-time lymphoma survivor and AYA cancer advocate, and Wendy is a licensed clinical social worker who manages the AYA program at MD Anderson. Along with our producer and fellow “lymphomie”, Layla, Carlo & Wendy will bring @thecancerpatient instagram page to life. We’ll talk about the real-life issues of AYA cancer and not shy away from the difficult topics, like social isolation and fertility. The goal of this podcast is to create a space for young adult cancer patients to talk about the real and raw side of cancer with a healthy dose of sarcasm and humor, and how to deal with the unsolicited advice (the “cancer muggle”). 

In addition to our hosts, we want to hear from you! We’ll be asking for voicemail submissions and community engagement via the instagram page because this is a place for your voice to be heard.
