Battling and Beating Cancer

Charlene McMann and Scott Seaman are featured on the WGN Radio show hosted by Patti Vasquez, discussing their book Batting and Beating Cancer: The Cancer Survival Book.

I haven't read the book, so I can't speak to it directly, but their discussion of the book is interesting. I particularly like that they pay attention to issues for caregivers. We so often forget about the ones that take care of us, the patients, and what they go through. They deserve some recognition.

I've written about McMann and Seaman before. They are founders of the Chicago Blood Cancer Foundation, and have done lots to raise awareness of (and money for) blood cancer issues in Chicago and around the country. Scott is a lymphoma survivor himself.

Good stuff. Worth the 25 minutes to listen.
