Thankfully, there are millions of cancer survivors in the U.S. today. And while survivors often experience victories, some may also face difficult physical and emotional obstacles. As part of Your Cancer Story, we collaborated with seven cancer patients and caregivers, including media personality Katie Couric, on an original new podcast series dedicated to sharing the real, unvarnished stories of cancer survivors as they navigate their individually defined new “normal.”

In the first episode, listen as Dylan and JB recount the internal struggles following their cancer diagnoses, as well as the personal transformations they both experienced.

“I think that this has definitely forced me to live in the now. You just don’t know how much longer you’re going to have it.”

“I want people to know that you’re not alone and that for all you’re going through, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.”

  • Kristi, caregiver

Katie Couric

“I decided that it was really important for me to inform people, that I needed to help them protect their own health and the health of their loved ones by getting screened.”
