16: Why We Just Can't Quit Cancer

On this episode Randalynn and Vicki chat about why they continue to talk about cancer and why they have made a decision not to stop. From awareness to education, and most importantly speaking up for those who can no longer speak for themselves,  they will continue to use our voices.   The topic of cancer itself sometimes makes people uncomfortable. Our goal is to not make you uncomfortable, but to help spread awareness, help educate and ultimately work to save lives. Join us as we chat about why we continue to advocate.  We would love if you could leave us a review!  Follow along on Instagram @SipsWithSurvivors

11: It's OK to Change

This week we are diving into how we evolve and change over time. Many times we experience something traumatic or difficult that truly changes the way we behave, how we navigate life and how we choose to move forward. Many of us have had to navigate a cancer diagnosis, an illness, a loss, even a divorce or a major surgery. These things are hard and truly can cause you to change. Many people don’t even realize that while they were going through something, they were changing along the way.  We would love and greatly appreciate it you would leave us a review!
