The Colon Cancer Podcast
This is really an incredible podcast! The topic of cancer is so emotional and Lee Silverstein presents himself in a very personal manner which makes it very engaging as well as informative. Lee creates an immediate connection, with the listener, and begins by telling his own story in a vulnerable way. I can imagine that he will be a very thoughtful interviewer with future podcasts and i very much look forward to hearing them.
Great job Lee Silverstein!
As the wife of a colorectal cancer survivor, I can't tell you how grateful I am to have such an informative podcast for survivors as well as caregivers. Listening to Lee's story, it made me want to cry laugh shout all at the same time.... I can't wait for the next one!
