Podcast: Finding Hope in the Face of Cancer




Last summer I became connected to a group called the Conquer Cancer Foundation, a branch of the American Society of Clinical Oncologists. My oncologist was awarded a research grant by CCF as she was finishing her fellowship in 2012. This grant launched her career in cancer research and ultimately allowed her to start the pembrolizumab/axitinib clinical trial that melted away my cancer!! CCF is close to my heart for this reason, and I volunteer with them to raise awareness and donations for cancer research.

Together with CCF and StoryCorps, John and I were able to record a conversation about our long and dramatic experience with cancer. They have edited down our 40 minute conversation to about 5 minutes, and it is such a beautiful testament to God's hand working in our lives.

I listen to it now, almost a year later. I hear my slow cadence confined by my brain fog, and I cannot help but be overwhelmed at how far we've come, even from only one year ago! My mind is clearer, my thoughts come faster, my words are easier to find. This isn't what you'll hear- it's just what I hear. You'll hear story of devastation, hope, redemption, joy. That's the story God has given us and the story that I am honored to share with the world.

As we were recording, I couldn't help but share God's hand in my healing, and I am thrilled that those messages made it into the short storyline that was created.

  1. Brittany, my 15 yr old son was also being treated br Bree Wilky for ASPS in the Axi-Pembro Trial. We drove from Michigan. But he developed acute liver problems & was removed & put on just Pembro. But we can't go back home, we have to stay in the Dade/Broward area. I'm writing to you for help, if you're able to that is. Would you please call or write me, so I can explain further? I would HUGELY appreciate it! Thank you & I'm so happy for you!

  5. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from BREAST CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of nipple discharge , and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with different types of cancer, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the cure to breast cancer . I never imagined breast cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
