Swedish launches Voices of Cancer podcast

November 7, 2014 Swedish News

New program hosted by Thrive Through Cancer founder takes on common issues faced by cancer patients and their loved ones

What: Today, Swedish is launching “Voices of Cancer,” a weekly podcast sponsored by the Swedish Cancer Institute and hosted by cancer survivor and Thrive Through Cancer founder Rose Ibarra. The series tackles issues that people diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones commonly face—from dating and careers to parenting and research.

Episode I starts at the beginning—“The Diagnosis.” The series will continue with discussions around cancer and:

  • Careers
  • Relationships
  • Parenting
  • Friends
  • The latest research and treatment options

Why: The Pacific Northwest is full of incredible cancer experiences—from the newly diagnosed to world-class researchers. “Voices of Cancer” brings these perspectives together and uses them to speak directly to patients about important and sometimes challenging issues.

Who: In Episode I, breast cancer survivor Corbin Lewars shares what it was like to be diagnosed with cancer and provides advice for others who share her experience. Dr. Samuel Tolman, Corbin’s oncologist at the Swedish Cancer Institute, talks about what it is like to tell someone that he/she has cancer and what those first visits with a provider typically entail.

Where: The “Voices of Cancer” podcast series can be downloaded at Swedish.org/cancerpodcasts. New episodes will be shared on the Swedish Medical Center Facebook and Twitter pages.

More: For more information, visit Swedish.org/cancer or ThriveThroughCancer.org.
