Back in January, when I first started putting information about my cancer on this blog, I appeared on CBC Radio here in Vancouver to talk about it. Today I'll be following up by appearing on the same show, "On the Coast" with Priya Ramu, about what's happened in the interim—which is (if you've been reading) rather a lot, and we're just getting started.
If you're the Internetty type, you can listen live to the high bandwidth (direct file link) or low bandwidth (direct file link) streams (Windows Media format, argh!). If you can manage to record it and send me a copy, that would be cool, though I may be able to obtain it directly from CBC.
That's good for me, but it's not really fair to others either—cancer is a disease that gets a lot of sympathy. No one blames you for it. But if I were addicted to something, or clinically depressed, or had another condition that is still full of stigma, would I feel so comfortable blogging about it, enough to go on the radio? Probably not. And that's a shame.
