Ep. 76 – Debunking Cancer Myths & Donating Cancer Books

A medical diagnosis can bring lots of unanswered questions and on this episode, we’ve tackled many of them. Today’s guest on “Happiness through Hardship” – The Podcast is one of Instagram’s favorite doctor’s, Dr. Eleonora Teplinsky. A board-certified medical oncologist, Dr. Teplinsky specializes in treating women with breast and gynecologic cancers while also focusing on cancer risk-reduction and healthy living. Dr. Teplinsky has a committed following on social media and also hosts the INTERLUDE podcast. On this episode, she helps us debunk some cancer myths and provides overall best practices. She’s filled with wise words and clarity. We would be grateful for your help supporting cancer patients, too, by donating “Happiness through Hardship”, a cancer guide and journal to her cancer center and worldwide podcast listeners.
