In honor of National Cancer Survivors Day this week, today’s show focuses on two talented individuals who are giving back to others going through the cancer experience. Mark Bowling is a singer and song writer who was born the youngest of nine children in the small town of Spencer Indiana. Mark was raised on classic country and gospel music and draws his influence from greats like Lyle Lovett, Hal Ketchum and Don Williams.

As an independently touring and recording singer-songwriter, Mark has shared the stage with Nashville stars such as Charlie Pride, Phil Vassar, Eric Church, Ty England and Collin Raye. Also on the show, Noreen Batt was diagnosed with invasive lobular carcinoma after her very first mammogram at 40. In her one-woman act called “Thanks for the Mamories,” she pokes good-natured fun at her medical team & herself while sharing personal insights into her cancer journey. She is a happily married mother of two and currently lives in New Hampshire.
