Airing time: Tuesdays 6pm
It’s only a word. Not a big word, but one that can change lives forever. Not talking about it won’t make it go away, but maybe sharing information, stories, and lived experience can empower us to deal with it.
That 'C' Word is bought to you by the Taranaki Cancer Society. Our show is another way to share and discuss cancer, and all things related to it. The good, the bad, the wonderful, the sad.
