Been a while since we have been in the podcast facility at GRP Studios in Longwood, but Episode 98 of the Check Your Six podcast was fantastic. I had Nikki Coppola with the National Ovarial Cancer Coalition(NOCC) in the studio along with her very special guest, a breast cancer and ovarian cancer survivor Barbara Kramer.
I learned a lot with these two women in the studio, first about the silence that comes with ovarian cancer and the other is the fighter mentality that both of these women possess. Nikki has a servants heart and a passion for helping others in creating hope and a better life for victims of all kinds of circumstances. Barbara was incredible just in the way that she described some of the things that she has gone through. Everyone knows about other cancers but it seems that ovarian cancer does not get the recognition and can be a tremendously challenging battle for women. Loved being able to talk with these two women and do what we can to bring attention to this terrible disease.
