Special Guest: Award-winning personality, Sharon K. McGhee, born in St. Louis, is the news director for WVON Radio.

McGhee decided to explore the topics of sexuality and responsibility in our community so she authored, The PocketBook Monologues. The term ‘pocketbook’ was used by many older African-American women when they described the triangle that separates their thighs. The Pocketbook Monologues, featured talented actresses: Kim Coles, Phyllis Yvonne Stickney, Essence Atkins and Ella Joyce, just to name a few.

Sharon K. McGheehas battled ovarian cancer for nearly three years and has decided to turn her life-changing diagnosis into an educational stage production about universal themes that cancer patients face: chemo, radiation, depression, addiction to prescription drugs, body image, new intimacy, and putting God first. A funny thing happened on the way to chemo and through humor, McGhee shares her journey with ovarian cancer and the journey of other cancer patients in her new venture, The Cancer Monologues.

SPECIAL GUEST:  Dr. Matthew Powell, a member of the Foundation for Women's Cancer Board of Directors and a gynecologic oncologist at Washington University, will be on the podcast. Check out their  National Race to End Women’s Cancer to be held in Washington, DC on November 6, 2011.  For more information about the race and registration go to. foundationforwomenscancer.org.
