Cancer Convos: Episode 2 Fertility

I have been dragging my feet a little bit on posting Episode 2 of Cancer Convos with Crush & Coconuts, for two reasons:

1. We recorded the episode 45 minutes after a seizure that really wiped me out, so my drugged up and exhausted state is cringeworthy.

2. It's a very personal, very raw video that is clearly difficult for me to open up out. As you know I emote, and share in written form - to expose myself in a video is much more intimidating. There's no way to hide your face, the tone of your voice, the tears.

I don't even remember recording, as I blackout after seizures, usually not remembering anything for at least 24 hours afterward so essentially, I'm watching this new with you. Without further adiau, please enjoy our experiences with fertility as it concerns with cancer.


And as always, if you have anything to add, please post comments so that others can learn from your experience. I always love comments on my blog posts, but I imagine the most beneficial place would be on the YouTube channel episode. Thank you for watching! :)

    1. Thank you! I'm sorry it was so sad. And I'm sorry we made you cry. It's a painful topic, but it needed to be said since it's a prevalent issue for us young adult cancer folks. Thank you for watching, and thank you for caring!

  2. This is a really valuable series. I admire what you two are creating together. I hope it gets widely seen because there's a lot to learn, a lot to feel, and much to take away from these conversations. It seems deep and necessary yet uncharted as well.
    K.D.

    1. Thank you! That makes us feel wonderful that you value us, and the episodes. You have no idea how much we appreciate that! I hope we help other people feel better (even though sometimes the subjects are hard to talk about). :)

    1. Wow, thank you! It's shocking how just one sentence can make a person's day (or several days, for that matter). Thank you for watching and for taking the time to post that comment!
