LATEST FEATURE: FOLLOW THAT FIRE
“In life after cancer, I experienced an entirely new level of anxiety that I didn’t know existed. I had to learn how to manage myself in that, and how to allow myself to process the trauma that I had just been through.”
A BOOK IS BORN
“I wanted to write and depict a story that was raw and honest and meaningful, and could potentially make somebody feel less alone.”
There’s no way to predict when cancer will show up. CC Webster was in her prime - in her 20s, living in New York City and working at a large advertising agency when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. It turned her world upside down, she says, but also allowed her to see what was truly important – and she saw the value in documenting her experience for others. The result was a book, “So, That Happened, A Memoir”.
THE LOVE STORY
"At the time of initial diagnosis, my relationship was very young. One week, we were going on a date to a French restaurant for dinner, and the next... we were counting eggs before chemo."
Here is an ode to the ones that sit next to the chemo chair, hold sweaty hands, run 40 blocks to make yet another appointment, who sit next to the bed, and who ultimately change the way we see ourselves. Here’s to you.
EXCLUSIVE FIRST INTERVIEW. CHECK IT.
"So what does it all mean, Basil..."
My editor and I decided to shoot the breeze and answer this question, but this time on film. Catch my very first interview with her to hear about how we met, why the hell I wrote a book, and the meaning behind the message. And no, we are not drinking.
JUST ME AND MY DOCTOR
What happens when a girl and her oncologist talk all things cancer?
We get unfiltered insight into the emotional story along with the physical facts. From dealing with the shockwave of that diagnosis, to exploring my relationship with my health, we learn that healing goes far beyond that last drip. It's mind and body, people.
Now up on Weill Cornell Medicine newest podcast, CancerCast, hosted by my incredible oncologist and head of the WCM lymphoma program, Dr. John Leonard.
