We are so excited for this special episode that addresses our listeners' questions. All of you have been writing to us, and we've got a long list of questions. We'll get through some today and save some for a second show toward the end of Season 3. You all know our season has been about community and the community of Cancering, and we couldn't think of a better way to respond to our community than by answering your questions directly so that you can understand, prevent, and fight cancer. Plus, our mission is to help all those who are Cancering in the best way possible, with the longest life and the highest quality of life. Enjoy this Part 1 of our Listener Questions episode.
