so listeners can stay informed and know the right questions to ask their health care

publications and online support groups and information. This program is the latest
in our effort to reach out in relevant ways to all people affected by cancer."

Frankly Speaking About Cancer will take the listener on a journey through topics
that inform and inspire. Episodes will tackle critical issues such as: achieving
the best care and quality of life, new research and treatments, relieving stress
and anxiety, life beyond treatment and talking to kids about cancer. Every week,
Kim Thiboldeaux will bring together noted physicians, researchers, nurses and social
workers, as well as patients and caregivers from every walk of life to share their
experiences and unique perspective.
