We learn about how Allison got involved with the organization, as well as the programs that Stupid Cancer offers the adolescents and young adult community, also known as the AYA community. Alison opens up about how her own brother’s bout with Cancer fuels her passion to help AYAs who are going through the same thing. Alison has dedicated her life to helping others and we really enjoyed our conversation today.
In his travels, Richman learned a lot about being brave enough to talk to people and sharing the emotional side of cancer. You can learn more about David and his adventure in this week’s episode of the Project Purple Podcast.
As an endurance athlete, he chose to ride his bicycle across country, 5,000 miles, to meet with each of them individually. The metaphor for endurance athletics and enduring life comes up over and over in the book and in our conversation because it’s such an apt metaphor. All proceeds of the book go to charity. But, get it for your own edification knowing you’re also helping cancer research.
