Love, Loss and Bold Living - A Conversation with Nancy Sharp

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

This episode features award winning author Nancy Sharp and her book BOTH SIDES NOW: A True Story of Love, Loss, and Bold Living. On the day that Nancy delivered premature twins, she learned that her husband's brain cancer had returned after eighteen months in remission. Less than three years later, at the age of 37, she became a widow. Seeking a fresh start, Nancy packed up her five year-old twins and left Manhattan for Denver, never imagining that she would find love in the pages of a magazine. The story of her unforgettable journey is a gift to those looking to lift themselves from the embers of loss and adversity through bold living.

Brain Tumor Awareness Month

Tuesday, May 27, 2014

“I won’t let a brain tumor defeat me or the people I love. It’s a scary diagnosis but now I know the facts.” This is a quote from Frankly Speaking About Cancer: Brain Tumors. Currently there are more than 688,000 people living with a brain or central nervous system tumor in the United States, and this year alone an estimated 23,380 adults will be diagnosed with a primary, cancerous brain tumor according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

To help us learn more about brain tumors this Brain Tumor Awareness Month, the show is joined by Deanna Glass Macenka, Program Coordinator the Neurosurgical Oncology Program at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and Dr. Ashley Love Sumrall, Neuro-Oncologist at the Levine Cancer Institute.
