Today I’m talking to Dr. Tali Lando in a very candid conversation about breast cancer.
Dr. Lando is a full-time pediatric ENT surgeon. She is also a breast cancer survivor. But the year she was diagnosed with cancer was anything but easy. Months before, she delivered her third daughter, a little preemie. Then her dad was diagnosed with brain cancer. And finally her own advanced breast cancer diagnosis.
She recently published a book about her experience called “Hell and Back: Wife and Mother, Doctor and Patient, Dragon Slayer.” You can buy it here.
We talk about what it was like being a doctor who was suddenly a vulnerable patient. In this honest conversation she talks about her relationship with her body, living in the moment and what she learned from her experience.
This is a story ripped straight out of a TV show. It reminded me a lot of something you would hear on Grey’s Anatomy. The big difference – this is a true story.
