Listen to Black Cancer: The Podcast

I Can’t Be the Only One Who’s Going Through This (with Jared) Black Cancer

In this episode of Black Cancer, Jared shares a story layered with multiple narratives one on top of the other. An unprecedented public health crisis, an unexpected cancer diagnosis and Jared’s father’s unwelcoming reaction to his engagement announcement to his long time partner. There are a lot of questions that just don’t have answers in how to make sense of it all. That’s because this is Jared’s life. In real time.  Oftentimes, survivors and “the survived” talk about cancer in the present tense because its impacts are always with us. But Jared’s story is happening now. His father’s battle with brain cancer is happening now. These unanswered questions, at the time of this recording, remain unanswered now. So why share it? Because we know there are a lot of people out there whose cancer journeys are just beginning and unfolding now. We want you to know that you are not alone.  Post Show: Message from Jodi-Ann about the end of Season 1 of Black Cancer  This episode was created during the 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic and the movement for Black lives. — Send in a voice message: Support this podcast:
