Did you know that nearly 40% of Americans will be diagnosed with some type of cancer during their lifetime? That’s shocking, right?

This time on The Facing Project, J.R. Jamison shares the stories of an oncologist and two cancer survivors, and later he is joined by mother-daughter and storyteller-writer duo Connie Robertson and Aimee Robertson-West to discuss Life With Cancer.
