Welcome to Life (After Cancer), an honest (perhaps too honest) and often irreverent podcast for post-cancer types who think the "new normal" (blech, that term!) can go [bleep] itself. Cause life after cancer looks like your own life--but it's completely different. Host Jenna Schnuer, an Anchorage-based New Yorker (yeah, it's a thing), finished up her own runaround with bad cells in April 2015. She kept expecting life to spring back to normal but shocker(!), it didn't. So now she's talking about it and she wants you in on the conversation too. So whether you had cancer of the boobs, balls, brains, or any other part, this podcast is for you.
||ExplicitEpisode 7: When the Intruder Refuses to Leave||On this episode, Jenna talks to Stacie Chevrier, who has been dealing with (and this is putting it very midly) a really s****y kind of cancer: neuroendocrine tumors (aka carcinoid tumors). Basically, there's no cure. There can be long periods of hanging||4/11/2018||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitEpisode 6: A Testis Conversation||On this episode, Jenna of the Boob Cancer talks to John Taylor of the Ball Cancer (it's like a post-cancer Game of Thrones episode) about the one thing you really don't want your doctor to say when she's looking at your nuts, mental health issues, goin||11/17/2017||Free||View in iTunes|

||ExplicitEpisode 3: The Long View||Jenna talks to writer Ruth Pennebaker, who was diagnosed with cancer 22 years ago. The two met a decade or so ago in NYC.

||CleanEpisode 2: Moving Right Along?||Jenna brings Annie, her first cancer friend, back to talk about the somewhat (ok, very) fluid dividing line between cancer and after cancer.

||ExplicitEpisode 1: A Hair-Raising Chat||In the first episode, Jenna hangs out with her first cancer friend and talks about hair issues and other random stuff.

||CleanLife (After Cancer) -- Trailer||Did you have cancer? Then this is the podcast for you. Seriously. Because post-cancer life can be hard. Damn hard. At times. Right?

OH MY.... love the honestly
Finally somebody that just " tells it like it is". Just heard from first episode (not sure where the web site is), and so refreshing just to hear somebody FINALLY not sugar-coating the real truth. And btw, I'm a three time survivor... life does REALLY change. And the (my) cancers every 12-18 mos, appreciate & keep-up the mental side of dealing with past (& potential future) cancer events.
Love & God Bless
Great episode. As a cancer survivor of 6+ years, it's great to hear Jenna talk so honestly about what many cancer survivors go through. Looking forward to future episodes!
So glad I subscribed!
I'm really glad I subscribed to this podcast. Jenna has a great personable style of interviewing and storytelling. I'm looking forward to future episodes.
