Cancer and laughter are two things that don’t usually seem to go together. This podcast gives those facing the disease a go-ahead to laugh. Survivor and comedian Brenda Elsagher are featured in the episode where she talks openly about her story, career and how humor helped her cope.

Laughter is not only a stress reducer, but some studies suggest it can reduce pain by increasing endorphins. Humor is one-way survivors may cope with the disease – As the podcast “Don’t Tell Me the F*$% How to Feel” with Jana Bolduan Lomax, PsyD, explained, there is no one way to deal with a diagnosis.
