About this Episode

Cancer doesn't just affect the person diagnosed; it can affect the whole family. In this episode, Tori and Khara offer incredible insight into what it's like to be a primary caregiver for someone diagnosed with cancer. Moreover, Tori and Khara both lost their mothers to breast and ovarian cancer, respectively, while both women were in college. We chat about this experience to lose a parent at such a young age, going through that grieving process and how that experience has given both women purpose to pursue fields in oncology.
