In December 2022 and January 2023, Suz Mondello, a friend of Commonweal and alumna of the Cancer Help Program, spoke with CancerChoices staff Nancy Hepp and Laura Pole about her four-year journey with cancer. Over the course of several hours, Suz shared openly about her experience from the very practical to the very personal, covering everything from diagnosis to managing pain, palliative care and hospice care, seeking and accepting social support, deep learnings and matters of the spirit, and more. Her deep hope is that others who also walk with cancer will find information and inspiration within these conversations that make their journeys even a little bit lighter, less overwhelming, and easier to navigate.
We have created a series of videos highlighting portions of these conversations. Two are presented in this first story, and links to three more stories are below. We sincerely thank Suz for the gift of her time, her wisdom, and her bright, kind, and compassionate presence.
