For 31 days in October, the impacts of breast cancer are brought to the forefront of the National Conversation. But the real conversation lasts much longer for patients, survivors, and their loved ones. It’s particularly stark for communities of color. Around 242,000 people are diagnosed every year with Breast Cancer – the second most common in the United States. And it’s not just women, 2,800 men will also be diagnosed this year. This week, a real talk on what’s being done to bring solace to those receiving a cancer diagnosis, and what doctors and even tattoo artists are doing to bring comfort to those fighting for remission.
Real Talk airs on CPR News and KRCC on Fridays at 3:30 p.m. and Mondays at 6:30 p.m. The TV show airs on Denver7 on Saturdays at 5:30 a.m. and Sundays at 5:30 p.m. It also airs on Local3 on Saturdays at 9:30 a.m. and Sundays at 6:30 p.m.
