New Orleans-based 'Living Lympho' Podcast Focuses On Stories, Survival

NEW ORLEANS – New Orleans "Lymho-Maniacs Cancer Fund," a group that raises funds for local non-profits battling cancer, has launched a podcast called "Living Lympho" that includes interviews with prominent Louisianians whose lives have been affected by cancer.

Topics also include cancer research programs at Ochsner hospital and experimental medical marijuana.

Hosted by Chad Landry, each show shares a common focus — mental and physical survivorship. From cancer survivors who share their powerful and inspiring stories to top doctors and scientists who discuss their cutting edge treatment programs, the podcast aims to inspire, support, and educate listeners.

The overarching theme is how to maintain a positive attitude when facing a cancer diagnosis or any other illness or hardship.

In the first episode of the "Living Lympho" Podcast, former U. S. Congressman Billy Tauzin from Louisiana speaks about his victory against intestinal cancer. Topics include: the whipple procedure, experimental drugs, advice from Lance Armstrong, medical marijuana as well as the partisan divide in Washington.

Another episode features Robert Vasquez, MD, Ph.D. speaking about an Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer and Survivorship Program at Ochsner hospital. The program provides treatment for patients ages 15–39 with most types of cancer. Researchers are discovering that many of the cancers that occur in this age group are biologically different than those seen at other ages. In addition, these patients have different medical, psychological and social needs than younger and older patients.
