Two Guys Talking About Beating Cancer

Ok, so we talk about more than beating cancer. But if not for Bill's diagnosis in 2017, we wouldn't be here talking at all. And while it's true that living healthier can help stave off chronic disease and cancer, if there's one thing we've learned since 2017, it's how everything we do--every decision we make--makes a difference to living well.

Click on any episode below to hear us discuss how we continue to learn to make the best decisions possible. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you may even learn something.
