Our episode this week will focus on body image and diet culture, both within society and the breast cancer community, and how treatment can affect our feelings about our bodies. Co-host Natalia Green moderates a panel of women currently living with MBC who discuss and share their experiences, as well as our guests, Lor Scannell and Mariah Crenshaw, two women in the breast cancer community dealing with issues on body image from both ends of the spectrum. We also speak with Dr. Krystle Zuniga, a registered and licensed cancer dietician based out of Austin, Texas.
"When I had early-stage (breast cancer), I didn't want a recurrence and I was much more caught up in how I looked. I think when I was diagnosed or since I've been diagnosed with metastatic disease, how I look is much less important than the fact that I go out and be present. Then I'm able to do things; I'm much more focused on how I l live, regardless of how I look." Dr. Ellen Landsberger
