Real Pink Podcast Launch
Susan G. Komen has
launched a new podcast, Real PinkTM,
that gives listeners the opportunity to share in the stories of those affected
by breast cancer. Whether it be survivors and those living with the disease,
their loved ones, researchers, physicians or advocates, Real Pink speaks to all.
Debuting on Apple,
iTunes, Podcast.net, Stitcher and all other podcast platforms in May, the Real Pink podcast is a weekly series
that brings people together for meaningful and honest conversations about
breast cancer – tackling tough, emotional or life-changing issues and topics.
Each week, host Adam
Walker will interview people who have been impacted by breast cancer, or those
on the front lines in the fight against the disease, including celebrities,
survivors, people living with the disease, physicians, researchers and
advocates to offer their personal perspectives and first-hand information and
guidance. Through Real Pink, Susan G.
Komen will strive to help those affected by breast cancer – including patients
and the people in their lives who love them – by providing the information
needed to make informed decisions.
A breast cancer diagnosis impacts every single aspect of
life, including relationships, finances, jobs and everything in between. Susan
G. Komen hopes that the raw discussions on Real
Pink are just the start of continued conversations with friends, family,
doctors, nurses and other trusted members of their team.
