Cancer, Musical Theatre, and Other Chronic Illnesses is a comical commentary about being a cancer patient and survivor framed in a fantasy musical theatre setting. Think "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend", but with cancer, and in a hospital. From healthcare snafus, to botched chemo, second opinions, being told you look great, being told you look terrible, navigating dietary restrictions, social restrictions, and break-ups, Cancer, Musical Theatre, & Other Chronic Illnesses has it all. Each episode is a chapter from the 2017 book of the same title. Some chapters are read by me, the author, and some are read by fellow cancer survivors. At the end of the episodes read by other survivors, there is a "Getting To Know You" interview where we delve into the lives of the reader and learn more about their story, journey, and relationship to cancer, musical theatre, and other chronic illnesses!
