A diagnosis of cancer is always overwhelming and emotional. Thoughts of shock, fear, denial, helplessness and hopelessness may be among them – but you are not alone. As you take your journey from diagnosis to treatment, having a strong support network is so important. In this episode of the Health Matters at Work® podcast series, host Jerry Franz is joined by three individuals who share stories of their cancer diagnosis and personal experience. Roberta Carlin is a two-time cancer survivor, first appendix cancer and then breast cancer. Dr. Laura Porter is a Stage IV colon cancer survivor, who was first diagnosed during her medical residency. Tom Bognanno is a current cancer patient who at the time of recording was just beginning his fight against prostate cancer. All three of these amazing individuals are sending a message of hope, strength and survival to those who need it.
