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. Sara is a two-time breast cancer survivor, and has also lost both of her parents to cancer in just one year. Tune in as she goes through the big no-nos and acceptable things to say to a person currently on a fight with cancer.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, September 15th, 2016.
