Cheryl Chats with Mary Bogue
guery Bogue“The world got smaller, my heart got bigger” “I wouldn’t say I have cancer-I would say cancer has me.” MARY BOGUE is sort of a new old friend of mine. She is a fabulous performer and I have been one table away from her in the LA jazz scene for years. Not until now have I had the opportunity to sit and really become dear friends. Mary is as brilliant as the Aurora Borealis in the skies-- while at the same time a sassy gal who wore red high heels and a red dress ( and hat.. of course) while getting chemo. She wanted to give that chemo some hell—and she did! Mary is a woman always looking for the humor even under the guise of cancer ( as she watched I Love Lucy at 2 am). It was her healing medicine.

Cheryl Chats with Morgan Ames
”I realized I am now in the hands of the Universe.” I have known Morgan Ames for years and years. She is deeply seeded in the music world and highly respected by the greats. So, as we have shared our lives a bit, it was a natural choice to invite her to share her beautiful heart with women out there who will benefit from her wisdom on “La Grand Adventure” More than another cancer survivor, Morgan is “Dukes up”--as she refers to herself, standing up to cancer. “Pain is the greatest teacher.” Listening to her teachings will help other women to hand it over and walk through it. Absorb each and every word--I guarantee you will be comforted.

Cheryl Chats with Sharon Mcevan Ellis
“I call it my cancer...my little buggers.” Sharon Mcevan Ellis is a gem. She is family as well. Her sister is Angela Paul, and her brother- in-law is Alan Paul, who happens to be my partner in The Manhattan Transfer. We go way back almost 40 years. I was so happy she agreed to share her story with us. She has a delightful energy and does not sugar coat her cancer journey. Sharon has maintained her uplifting spirit and familiar heartfelt telling of her story with frequent healing affirmations, on and off Facebook. I look forward to her new entries.

Cheryl Chats with Leslie Page
Leslie Page“You can only refine gold through fire.” LESLIE PAGE is a fantastic and very original singer--and my neighbor here in Palm Springs! She’s traveled the world, as she was singing background to Joe Walsh, and has trudged through cancer as well. I was very interested in her story. Easy to understand, yet filled with detailed information of her battle, her resilience is awesome. Her story is multi-faceted and full of knowledge showing her mastery of the language of cancer.

Cheryl Bentyne has been a member of iconic, jazz vocal group THE MANHATTAN TRANSFER for over 40 years, and is a 10x GRAMMY winner. She has survived cancer two times and continues to create music and perform, both as a solo artist and member of the group. "Like most people who develop a serious disease, when I heard my cancer diagnosis, I immediately felt alone. I didn’t understand the depth of my illness, or the darkness that I went through--so how could anyone else?" But as my podcast reveals, cancer patients are always supportive, understanding and caring for each other. This is my journey, revealed through stories of eight inspiring Warrior Women. One on one conversations. Intimate yet open, afraid yet hopeful. And laughter...lots of laughter. I know you’ll be as inspired by their stories as I am.” —cb
