Tari Prinster is a cancer survivor, yoga teacher and author. She is the Founder of Yoga4Cancer, LLC (y4c) and the Retreat Project (nonprofit) – businesses that are bringing specialized yoga cancer survivors through classes & retreats. Also she leads a robust teacher training program to help enable yoga teachers to best adapt all styles to fit the unique needs of cancer patients & survivors.
In Tari’s own words, she recounts her background with yoga and cancer: ‘When I was fifty, I started a yoga practice on a hunch it would ease menopausal symptoms. It did! That was sixteen years ago. Today, I am an example that it is never too late to start, never too late to change. Yoga made me feel younger and stand straighter. I sleep better, my weight is good, and my bones are strong.
I found yoga a powerful tool to manage the daily challenges of cancer treatments as well as the side effects and life-long vulnerabilities they create. I discovered yoga was more than a way to stay healthy. It gave me emotional support and spiritual comfort so needed during recovery.
I was curious why yoga was doing so much for me. My research made it clear why yoga strengthens the immune system, thus providing, among other things, protection against a cancer reoccurrence.

Joyce and Mike speak with Georgia Hurst as part of Lynch Syndrome Awareness Week.
Georgia Hurst is a patient advocate for those with Lynch syndrome. She is the founder of the website and blog: <a href="http://ihavelynchsyndrome.com">ihavelynchsyndrome.com</a>. She frequently writes about the emotional aspects of having Lynch syndrome, and writes for various websites and journals in order to create awareness amongst the global medical community about this hereditary cancer syndrome. Georgia is a wife and mother, and loves espresso, books, and being bossed around by her adorable dog named Sid.
What is Lynch syndrome? We will learn more from Georgia, or you can read about it on her website, or in this article from <a href="http://http://www.curetoday.com/community/georgia-hurst/2015/02/i-have-lynch-syndrome">www.curetoday.com</a>
Georgia noticed that there were several people in her family who had cancer at early ages, and several with the same cancer. This can indicate that there is something genetic predisposing family members to cancer. She delved deeper, got to a diagnosis, and kept asking questions, finding out how to protect herself and others in her family from the worst consequences of this condition.
Hear her remarkable story, the path she followed in doing her own research, and the partnerships she has developed with medical professionals to help her make progress for herself and others.

Let's talk cancer and cancer awareness and resources etc etc
Do you know someone who has had cancer?
Do you know someone who has had side effects from cancer treatment?
Do you know how to prevent cancer from happening?
What do we know, should we know, and what are we needing to learn?
Let's talk cancer awareness...
Mike Lawing and Andy Derr have been living with kidney cancer for years. Both of them have learned not to knuckle under to a difficult diagnosis, but to challenge themselves to live WITH it, maintain their quality of life, and keep the nastiest effects of cancer at bay.
It's not easy. But today there are better tools for challenging kidney cancer than ever before. Working closely with their doctors, they have discovered strategies -- medical, mental, and spiritual -- that have helped them keep their heads high and their spirits strong and at the same time keeping cancer in the background of their lives.
Mike, Andy, and Joyce all attended the Kidney Cancer Symposium sponsored by the Kidney Cancer association in October 2014, and prepared a report in patient-approachable language to share with other patients and their families the amazing progress reported at the symposium. Mike did the bulk of the work -- the concept, the layout, and pictures, the editing -- and Andy and Joyce contributed articles.
You will want to hear this conversation!
