Hear candid conversations between people conquering cancer – patients, their family and friends, and doctors and researchers working to help us all.
In Sickness and in Health
After receiving a Stage III breast cancer diagnosis, Jane qualified for a clinical trial. Her husband shares how the combination of experimental drugs and chemotherapy left Jane exhausted and sick but ultimately caused her tumor to disappear, allowing her many years to work on behalf of others.
“I knew she was a strong person,” William said, “but I didn't know how she would deal with something like this.”
From nausea to hair loss, William shares a spouse’s viewpoint of conquering cancer.
From Patient to Patient Advocate
Once the trial was complete, Jane focused her renewed energy on advocating for research and helping other patients. She built a reputation as a leading patient advocate and changemaker.
“She was so incisive in looking at the data, looking at treatments, and in looking at what we would really need to cure breast cancer,” says Susan.
In this episode, people who loved the late Jane Reese-Coulbourne – her husband and her dear friend – celebrate her life and share both the joys and struggles of caring for a loved one during cancer treatment.
