The Cancering Show Launches

USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute and Deep Fried Studios Launch The Cancering Show Podcast.

Deep Fried Studios is excited to announce the creation and launch of The Cancering Show, a podcast featuring Dr. Jennifer Young Pierce of the USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute.

The Cancering Show is an info-tainment podcast that explores and discusses the patient & the healthcare professional perspective and journey of cancer from that "OMG" moment of diagnosis, through treatment, survivorship, and everything in-between. This podcast's mission is to:

  • Demystify cancer.

  • Share reliable cancer medical knowledge, stories, coping advice, life tips, inspiration, humor, jokes, and even smiles.

  • Take away as much fear out of a cancer diagnosis, treatment, and process, and defeat its grip on our lives.

  • Create awareness for new and existing cancer patients and family members that they are not alone in their journey and fight.

  • Share some of the world-class cancer research, innovation, and healthcare being performed at Mitchell Cancer Institute.

Check out The Cancering Show

Cancering (v):

The state of acknowledging cancer has touched each and everyone one us*. The people, communities, and all aspects of our modern life. Plus, recognizing the decisions, actions, responsibilities, and mindset we need to understand, cope with, fight, and even thrive with a cancer diagnosis.

*Us = new and existing patients, survivors, families of the sick and survivors, doctors, nurses, healthcare staff, friends, and neighbors.

The Cancering Show is recorded at the Deep Fried Studios in Mobile, Alabama and his engineered and produced by Johnny Gwin.

To date, the Cancering Show features three episodes (there will be a total of 12 for the first season):

Ep.1 - Who Is Dr. JYP? >>> Listen here

On this first episode, Dr. Mike Finan, a senior gynecologic oncologist and professor of interdisciplinary clinical oncology at USA Health Mitchell Cancer Institute introduces you to the show's host, Dr. Jennifer Young Pierce, or "JYP" to many of her colleagues and friends. Dr. JYP is a GYN oncologist at the Mitchell Cancer Institute and also the program leader for the MCI Division of Cancer Control and Prevention. Dr. JYP shares her journey from medical school to the Mitchell Cancer Institute, what inspired her to become a doctor and oncologist, and what drives her today in cancer research and patient care.

Ep.2 - The Symptoms with Dr. Israel >>> Listen here

In most patients' cancer stories and journeys, cancer didn't start with the diagnosis. First, there are symptoms, pain, and probably a visit to the family doctor, Urgent Care or student health center before the diagnosis is made. In this episode, Dr. JYP and studio guest Dr. Robert Israel, an internal medicine physician in Mobile, Alabama, talk about common and uncommon cancer symptoms, early tests, hearing the diagnosis and learning how the trusted family doctor works with a patient's new team of cancer specialists and caregivers. Plus, they discuss the mental distress of a diagnosis, the healthy lifestyle, and how a patient can smoothly transition from treatment back to his or her primary care doctor to live fully in survivorship.

Ep. 3 - The Diagnosis with Dr. Butler >>> Listen here

In this episode, Dr. JYP consults with MCI oncologist and supportive care physician Dr. Thomas Butler about delivering and managing the emotional side of a cancer diagnosis, and how patients can still live their lives with that life-changing reality. Even an "incurable" diagnosis. Dr. Butler candidly shares his thoughts on talking with doctors, building trust, the importance of positivity and spirituality, and the interdisciplinary care processes that affect the cancer patient, family, and community.
