Every cancer survivor we've met talks about the people they've gotten to know who helped them or inspired them to survive and beat the disease or to get back to a normal way of life. Often, a survivor's experience motivated them to help others being treated for cancer. Radio Smart Talk host Scott LaMar talks with two women who did just that -- they survived cancer and now they are there for others.
Listen to their conversation:
Colon cancer survivor, Lynn Eib, is a patient advocate who provides emotional and spiritual support to cancer patients. She also runs several support groups to help people process their emotions and connect with other people on a similar journey. Visit Lynn's website for more information.
Vicky Darden is a courageous cervical cancer survivor with a mission. She sold all of her possessions and is on the road, biking around the world for a year, delivering smiles to some of the 28 million cancer survivors out there. Follow her journey and show your support at her blog.
