SUSAN G. KOMEN® LAUNCHES NEW PODCAST FOR THOSE TOUCHED BY BREAST CANCER

In May 2019, Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, announced the launch of a new podcast, Real PinkTM, debuting on Apple, iTunes, Podcast.net, Stitcher and all other podcast platforms this month. The Real Pinkpodcast is a weekly series that brings people together for meaningful and honest conversations about breast cancer – tackling tough, emotional or life-changing issues and topics.
Each week, host Adam Walker will interview people who have been impacted by breast cancer, or those on the front lines in the fight against the disease, including celebrities, survivors, people living with the disease, physicians, researchers and advocates to offer their personal perspectives and first-hand information and guidance. Through Real Pink, Susan G. Komen will strive to help those affected by breast cancer – including patients and the people in their lives who love them – by providing the information needed to make informed decisions.
“We know that a breast cancer diagnosis impacts every single aspect of life, including relationships, finances, jobs and everything in between,” says Linda Fisk, senior vice president, marketing at Susan G. Komen. “It is our hope that the raw discussions on Real Pinkare just the start of continued conversations with friends, family, doctors, nurses and other trusted members of their team.”
InReal Pink’s debut episode, Walker and Samantha Harris, entertainment journalist, Emmy-winning television host and breast cancer survivor, discuss her emotional journey of diagnosis and treatment.
Real Pink is available now for download on iHeart Radio, iTunes, Google Podcasts and Stitcher. New episodes will be available every Monday and will include interviews from guests such as Sandra Lee, multiple Emmy® Award-Winning television chef, author of 27 books and breast cancer survivor, and Kikkan Randall, 5-time Olympic cross-country skiing champion and breast cancer survivor.
