Living with Cancer

Season 06  Episode 21

A cancer diagnosis changes our lives forever, marking the beginning of what can be a long and difficult fight. But with science, fortitude, and the love of others, people can - and do - survive. Despite losing her hair to chemo, Leslie Nguyen-Okwu finds beauty in her Blackness; Daniel G Garza and his partner use humor to cope with the challenges of caregiving; and Mel Mann fights the odds to overcome “terminal” leukemia and become a marathon runner. Three storytellers, three interpretations of LIVING WITH CANCER, hosted by Wes Hazard.
