No Boobs, No Problem!

PRESENTED ON MAR 07, 2015
IN WILLIAMSBURG @ VOL 11

This presentation is a continuum of some of Lulu De Panbehchi's previous PK talks. We have seen her journey through chemotherapy as interpreted through her photography, her outlooks on life and her work at the time, and now her perspective on life after breast cancer. One thing is obvious, Lulu is a positive spirit.

In the making of the video, life threw a lot of curveballs (many of which she realised in retrospect stemmed from her own assumptions). Overcoming each of these made her understand that when we say yes to our passions, doors open, creativity flows and life says yes right back.

BY DAN DEAN

Let's be straight about a couple of things: 1) cancer sucks a giant Matzo ball if you've got it; and 2) it's hard to make chit-chat with someone who does have it. In this offbeat presentation, cancer survivor Dan Dean offers you the 9 do's and don'ts of how to interact with that special cancer patient in your life.

Cancer doesn't ruin friendships - your attitude does

BY SARAH TRIMMER
@ VOL 5 ON JUN 17, 2016

“When life hands your friend or family member lemons, please do not tell them of someone else you know, that died of lemons!”

In "Cancer doesn't ruin friendships - your attitude does" from PechaKucha Night Easton Vol. 5, Sarah Trimmer tells us how to be a good friend to someone with cancer - and somehow makes us laugh as we learn.
