How Can I Improve My Well-Being with Cancer? with Em Veach
This week we're exploring a chronic illness that we haven't before, and yet is extremely common - cancer. The lessons from this episode, can easily be applied to any chronic illness though. And we all know or have known someone with cancer. My guest this week is Em Veach who shares her story and what has helped her.
In this episode we talk about:
- metastatic breast cancer
- ways to improve your well-being after a cancer diagnosis
- a new product for cancer patients from Em's startup, Casual Recovery
Em Veach is COO of Casual Recovery, a medical device startup. We invented a wearable surgical recovery garment out of necessity. The company founder, Aisha McCain, invented and patented the garment with the support of her plastic surgeon. Now, we are building an all-star team and raising funds to deliver our products to people who need them. Ms. Veach, who is also a cancer survivor, is passionate about helping people and funding research for more effective, less toxic treatments for cancer and other diseases. She is a graduate of Indiana University and trained at the Knight New Media Center as well as the National Breast Cancer Coalition’s Project LEAD advocacy program.
