Meg Stafford leads the chorus of people who have been treated for breast cancer. With a lens of joie de vivre and savor faire (all without breaking into French), Topic of Cancer: Riding the Waves of the Big C is about more than endurance. Stafford embraces the living that accompanies treatment. The listener meets Laser Lady, Plastic Guy, and Hugs as Stafford rides the riptides, including the listener on the daily choices that arise. She greets every emotion and quirky occurrence that washes into her life. Stafford honors the individual differences that create a unique set of options for each person addressing illness and what results is a connection to her, to ourselves, and to life itself.
