Cancer: How we show up for others in crisis

At 44, Sarah McDonald was newly married, newly promoted, and planning pregnancy. It felt like a time of new beginnings when suddenly she was diagnosed with a rare, incurable cancer. Two months later, she was diagnosed with another unrelated cancer. During this struggle, her father’s cancer, ten years in remission, returned and added new challenges and a cancer buddy to her world. In this conversation, we’ll explore how we show up, especially with many challenges in the past few years.
