Bad Right Breast

Bad Right Breast

Bad Right Breast is the podcast that talks through the dirty truths and personal experiences of people living cancer. Please join us as we talk through issues that you don’t necessarily hear on the news or in the doctor’s office, but are things that anyone who has dealt with cancer lives through each and every day – and by that, I mean, every single person you know and don’t know. Because cancer, well it knows no prejudice and affects everyone. Please join us for Bad Right Breast.

When those words are told to you, that you are those words, after going through something that you truly had no choice, that every other person who is diagnosed is also forced to go through, all because the alternative is death.   Well, sometimes those words just sit there.   Difficult, sometimes impossible to digest.

    If you were/are a young artist, actor specifically, with dreams of New York, you know what it’s like when you finally make it there. At the ripe age of 24, Brianna had to not only navigate herself through the ins and outs of New York, but also the ins and outs of the health care system in New York.

    One of the biggest concerns I had upon diagnosis was how this was going to affect my family and friends.  One of the biggest reasons why women I’ve talked to do NOT tell their families or kids that they have cancer is that they don’t want their lives to be affected or changed.

    Imagine…  You’re young, late 20’s, just married, and now you’re pregnant.  You’re ready to do all of the things that a new, awaiting mom should be doing.  But you know that something’s not right. And because you know your body, even though something foreign is growing inside, you know not to listen to everyone else, but to trust your instincts.  That was Amanda.  And that something?  Was Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  And that baby?  Well, s...

    When it comes to those with cancer diagnosis – there is a definite normal before knowing you had cancer and a normal after knowing you had cancer.  Your world, and those in it, are forever changed.   How you think about yourself, how you think about others.  How others treat you.  How the world appears.  How you react to what life brings.   Your perspective, your goals.  Life is not the same, and your normal is not the same.

    Artists are constantly grappled with concepts, story lines, content.  So when something happens to an artist, that stops them in their tracks, makes them take a double take on their own existence, and then the existence of everything they know…their art is never quite the same.

    The epitome of the working actor, pounding the pavement, going from gig to gig.  It was the moment in between gigs that forced her to listen to her body and trust her instincts.  But Rebecca’s story goes even deeper.  When you hear how some cancer stories tear apart relationships, her cancer saved not just one, but two, and as we often hear put an entirely new perspective on one’s life.

    When people are told that they beat cancer, and are cheered on by so many others that they are warriors and survivors, there’s that little voice in the back of our heads that sits there, and constantly comes to the forefront and brings forth a bit of fear.  Here’s a few of our artists, sharing their answers to the questions – do you ever have a fear of it returning?

    When you’re done with treatment, whether you’re told or not told that you’re cancer free, your follow-up will be very specific to you and your cancer.   For the most part it may be once a month soon afterwards, and then turn into every three months, and then every six months, and if you’re lucky once a year and if you’ve gotten the golden ticket – never again!

    If you’re told that YOU’RE CANCER FREE, do you actually believe it?  Do you believe that you are FREE of this horrible, sneaky, scary, disease?  And if you are ‘free’ of it, are ever really free?

    Three years ago, Katie knew something wasn’t right with her bowel movements, and was fortunate enough to have surrounded herself around doctors that listened to her.  Once they did, they discovered she had Colon Rectal Cancer.  So warning, not only are there butt jokes in this episode, but Katie is very much like me, in that, well, we both talk like sailors.

    Treatment for cancer, even if it’s the same type of cancer, varies far and wide.  Not only because of the uniqueness of all of our bodies, cancer, diagnosis but hospitals, doctors, location.  I mean, treatment and how they do things in New York are vastly different than how things are done in Illinois, Florida, Iowa.  To add on top of that… ‘the show must go on.’

    When going through cancer isn’t the worst or even scariest health drama you’ve had to deal with, well, it definitely makes it easier getting to the other side.  I had always admired Joanna before any of the shit that she’s had to deal with.  And now, I admire her perspective on life, the industry, health care and so much more.

    There’s many different reasons why you choose your doctors.  Sometimes it’s because of your insurance.  Sometimes it’s because of their location.  Sometimes it’s a gut feeling.  And sometimes personalities just don’t match.  In the end, it’s your body and your choice.

    Unfortunately, some people are forced to learn at a young age the consequences of having or not having insurance.  No matter what insurance coverage you have, it’s a near full-time job navigating co-pays, out-of-pocket, in-network, referrals, approvals, and more.  Hell, it has its own language.  So not only do you need to learn Cancer language, but you have to add Insurance to your homework.

    My best friend of 25+ years, Becca Ayers, shares her story of going through Colon Rectal cancer treatment and diagnosis in the middle of a little known pre-Broadway show.  So trigger warning:  we talk frank, graphicly, and sometimes finish each other’s sentences.

    It’s always a tad uncomfortable when you have to ask for help, especially when you look normal on the outside, but treatment is going to make you very not normal.  But what happens when you really need the most help and it’s not there – like when you’re done with treatment and are in the deepest depression you’ve ever experienced.  Or when your cancer becomes more like a chronic disease and there is no end to the help that’s needed...

    It’s one thing to tell your family and loved ones that you have cancer, but then there are others.  For some women, they choose a point person or persons to spread the news, for others it’s a group text or email, for some they, like myself, post on social media, and for a few they just go ahead and create their own youtube channel.  There’s no right or wrong way to tell your story.

      The Piketon Massacre

      The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
