When Lauren Chiarello was 23 years old, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Now over nine years in remission, Lauren is deeply involved in cancer advocacy at Memorial Sloan Kettering. From speaking at nurse orientations to being a resource for patients, one thing is clear: Lauren believes that by sharing our stories, we cultivate community. On this episode, Lauren and I talk about her journey with cancer, her recent experience with an ectopic pregnancy, and how she stays optimistic through it all.
