⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"This podcast feels so close and personal. Even through just the trailer and episode 1, the depth and intimacy of the show is clear, and the editing is excellent. Excited to hear future episodes!"

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"This pod is incredible. The narrator explains complex aspects to cancer and its treatments while directly taking me on an emotional journey that is real and stretches beyond the stereotype to bring me into the story."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
"I listened to every available episode of this podcast in one sitting [...] I learned so much about the disease and treatment while listening. The science and the story are presented so clearly.
I also felt connect to the lives of the host and her mother. At the time, I was young and took the approach to look away instead of witnessing my mother's journey. This podcast helped piece back and rebuild some of those memories that I've been too afraid to look at.  "
