We Get It: Parenting and advocacy with Heather Brown (season 3, episode 8)

Closed captioning available on our YouTube links!

In this week’s episode, Alex chats with fellow YACCtivist Heather Brown about her role advocating for the cancer community’s resources, sharing her story, and all of the important human occupations that deserve more attention! The two also touch on parenting and how a cancer diagnosis is brought to light to children from a parent’s perspective.

HEATHER’S BIO: I identify as an English Canadian, and am married with two children. I am a thyroid cancer survivor, enjoy watching rom coms and superhero movies, a lover of many types of music, and someone who is driven to care for others and strives to be involved and volunteer to help make a difference in the community. Through my cancer journey, I dealt with isolation, fear of recurrence, and anxiety. As a YACCtivist, I am eager to help fellow AYAs to feel supported and help create more awareness about their AYA cancer experience. In the episode, Heather has shoulder length brown hair. She is wearing a blue shirt. She is sitting in her home office.
