We talk about chemotherapy and how we dealt with our own.

  • Everyone has a different chemo experience, and it's all pretty boring and unpleasant.
  • Look into intermittent fasting and immunocal.
  • Bring friends and something to do.
  • Plan fun things for your chemo days, like a treat or a show.
  • Find a happy place at the hospital.
  • Drink water.
  • Take the warm blanket! Take two and wrap your arm.
  • Food can help, so maybe talk to a nutritionist.
  • Take it as easy as possible.
  • You are a whole new person now. OUCH! .....YAY!
  • Get out in the world to build your biome.
  • Plant a tree: it might just save a life.

What Did You Just Say?

How do you talk to someone with cancer? Leanna and Mimi discuss.

  • People are going to say dumb things to cancer patients. It is inevitable.
  • People are trying to relate to your worst thing with their worst thing.
  • Supportive silence can be golden
  • Have strategies to end a conversation you don't want to have.
    • Weaponized crying
    • "I really can't talk about this right now"
