BETH: Do you remember my response when you suggested we start a podcast?
SARAH: Yeah, I think you said “hell no!”
BETH: And yet, here we are. You are subtly persuasive my friend.
SARAH: It was a good move though, right?
SARAH: I was thinking about us doing a podcast way before the pandemic hit and then when that all happened, it was perfect timing.
BETH: Yeah with Covid19 there was zero emotional support allowed in the clinical setting so all these women were having to go through treatment alone so I agree, the timing was perfect for what we were trying to do which was to reduce isolation and improve access to information.
SARAH: Most people don’t realize we weren’t friends before our breast cancer diagnosis’ so they wonder how we started a podcast together.
BETH: It was a gradual friendship and working relationship don’t you think? You attended a community breakfast for my nonprofit Faith Through Fire and then became a survivor mentor in our mentor program. From there we became friendly and that’s when you suggested we do a podcast. We worked so well together that now you’re the VP at FTF.
SARAH: Funny how things work out! What’s your favorite part of doing the podcast?
BETH: It’s like therapy for me. I get to say all the things I feel. What about you?
SARAH: All the cool people we get to talk to, taking something traumatic and making it into something that helps others.
BETH: Yep, definitely.
