Flat: How One Woman Reclaimed Her Body From Breast Cancer, October 18, 2018

Guthrie catherine

Catherine Guthrie is a women's health journalist with two decades of experience in the magazine and publishing industry. She has written for Cosmopolitan; O, The Oprah Magazine; Slate; Time; and Better Homes and Gardens, among others.

In 2009, at age 38, Catherine was diagnosed with breast cancer. Although the cancer was only in one breast, she opted for a double mastectomy and chose not to reconstruct. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a second time a year later in 2010. During her treatment, she searched for a memoir where the narrator grappled with the reality of the disease, where she unpacked questions about reconstruction, and challenged the tacit assumptions about what women want or need to feel whole after cancer. She couldn't find a book that filled that niche, so she wrote one. Catherine's queer, feminist memoir, FLAT: Reclaiming My Body From Breast Cancer, was published in September 2018.

Listen to the podcast to hear Catherine discuss:

  • "the male gaze" and how it informs breast reconstruction, even if the surgeon is a woman
  • how her queerness affected her experience with breast cancer
  • how her experience with breast cancer has changed how she reports on the disease
  • her advice to women on things they can do to help ensure that their choices about reconstruction — or not — are respected by surgeons

Caring for Men Who Are Cancer Caregivers, October 31, 2018

Woody kyle

Kyle Woody is cofounder and executive director of Jack's Caregiver Coalition, a community of men who are cancer caregivers. Kyle believes that one of the biggest and most important challenges a man can face in his lifetime is engaging as a caregiver for a loved one with a serious disease such as cancer. Kyle believes that every man has the potential to rise to that challenge and be his boldest and most confident self. Reflecting on his experience as a primary caregiver for his spouse with metastatic colon cancer, he realized the principles of excellence and sound teamwork that he preached in his professional career should have been applied at home in his caregiving experience, which is why he helped found Jack's in 2014 to improve the way men think, feel, and act in their role as cancer caregivers.

Listen to the podcast to hear Kyle talk about:

  • how Jack's was founded
  • some of the programs Jack's offers to help men who are caregivers
  • some things that he'd like men who are cancer caregivers to know
  • why caregiving is akin to a team sport
